EcoTrust Society President Inaugural Speech 2014

It is with great enthusiasm and zeal, that I accept this position as President of the School of Earth and Environmental Science EcoTrust society.

First of all, I would like to thank the Immediate Past President, and the Executive Committee for leading the club to achieve yet another successful year. The team has left quite an order for the new team to fill.

This new team hope to take you through a fun, fulfilling and friendly year. Fun whether it be sports, career day or any other activity we will have a hell of a time!

Fulfilling the achievements that we are aiming for, the memorable experiences, time spent together and networks created.

Friendly, we are a family in SEES, with a mutually supportive environment where we aim to create and promote social cohesiveness. EcoTrust society is the tree within Sees that connects and holds us together as a family. With buttresses bonds that will last and be cherished throughout our lives.

So Seesars as a united front, using the academic, professional and civil resources that we have, we will be researchers, we will be advocates,

We will defend the environment and ensure sustainable development. Our voice will be loud and our pens louder! We cannot make a better past, but we can make a better future. As an Environmental Society we need to be vigilant.

We live in an era where environmental issues are prominent in society. From Guyana’s low carbon development strategy, to the clean up Guyana campaign. We have duties to ourselves, our nation and the world to be actively involved.

Duties that we do not grudgingly accept, but rather seize gladly, firm in the knowledge as academics and filled with energy as young people knowing that there is nothing more  satisfying, so defining of our character, than giving our all to a difficult task. Making a positive impact on campus and nationwide as we climb to greater heights.

Let it be said in the years to come that we did not turn back nor did we falter; but with eyes fixed on the horizon and as my good friend Jévanah would say “God’s grace upon us”, we will carry forth that great gift of a green environment and deliver it safely to future generations.

I would like to give special thanks to Miss Simmons for her support, to Mr. Joshua Griffith acting President of UGSS, the media  Mr Duncan, Everyone who came out to this morning’s event, and especially my executive team. Looking forward to your continued participation and support.

Thank you.
