 Manifesto

The Roots of The Sea / Rasin Lanmè association is part of the fight against climate change, the erosion of biodiversity and social and climatic injustices. Our actions aim to reduce the impacts on our ecosystems, the human and non-human species that live there. More than a conviction, our commitment is to federate and create a real impact on Caribbean society. Our vision revolves around three major and timeless axes which constitute the pillars of the association.

       Act today as part of long-term thinking

Develop our actions and messages by freeing ourselves from time despite the urgency to act: for a long-lasting, long-term impact that is part of the time of the living  

 

       Focus on generations-to-impact

Co-constructing (transmitting, educating, sharing) with impact-generations, development tools for a future centered on ecological sustainability 

 

       Promote effective Caribbean collaboration

Contribute positively to strengthening the Caribbean network around the

issues related to the environment through the facilitation of inter-island exchanges, the sharing of experiences, the promotion of lessons learned.

Our values

Joining the association means adhering to a set of values that apply to our mission and our field of action.

Our mission is part of the fight against climate change, the erosion of biodiversity and social and climatic injustice.

Through our actions we want to reduce the impacts on our ecosystems, and the human and non-human species that live there.

Joining Roots of the Sea also means being aware : 

  • the impact of climate change on marine and terrestrial ecosystems 

  • the erosion of biodiversity that weighs on non-human species on a global scale

  • ecological injustices that struggle to be sanctioned and repaired, excluding the rights of local and indigenous populations

  • pressure suffered locally by the marine and coastal ecosystems of Martinique

  • the fragile dependence of coastal populations on marine resources

  • environmental issues specific to Martinique (use of pesticides in an island context, legal and illegal extension of development/housing in the coastal zone, etc.)

  • the crucial role of transmitting knowledge about the environment around us through intergenerational education

  • the importance of respecting and integrating local cultures 

  • the need for intersectional environmentalism, recognizing that the exclusion of minority or marginalized individuals/groups, in particular according to their social and/or ethnic background, their gender and their sexual orientation, does not make it possible to respond equitably to environmental and social issues.
