Inaugural Project Symposium

Morne Bruce, Dominica | 6th May 2021

On the 6th May 2021 the Surviving Storms project team invited a group key stakeholders to discuss the project’s objectives and guide its vision. Invited guests included local village council representatives, relevant government agencies (forestry, agriculture, CREAD), as well as those from disaster management, youth, media and education sectors.

The discussions on post-storm learning, rainwater water harvesting, resilient traditional architecture and the overall focus on survival and repair, were especially rich. This short film, shot and produced by Michael Lees, offers an overview of the event and a brief intro to the project.
