The Institute for Sustainable Technology foundation (iSustain Tech) was established in Bonaire in 2016 to promote research, education and development of sustainable technologies. iSustain Tech is partnering with governments, foundations, industry and international partners to achieve its mission.
iSustain Tech’s mission is to operate a research and educational organization that will design, test and promote sustainable technologies for small island states to improve the socioeconomic well-being of the people, the island and the Caribbean Sea.
The foundation will achieve this mission through:
- developing programs (research and education) that promote the sustainability of the terrestrial and aquatic island ecosystems and perpetuation of nature;
- supporting organizations in the development of policies and procedures that promote sustainable development;
- providing opportunities for students, teachers, researchers and other interested parties to work with the foundation in the furtherance of its mission.
