As I teach Social Studies at a secondary school I have annually to teach about sustainable development. This is also very often in the news as international organizations, environmental groups and national government in the Caribbean and elsewhere are increasingly talking about it.  Recently here in St. Lucia, a programme got underway where an Association of Hoteliers established a fund that their guests can contribute to so that they could undertake "sustainable development" projects in the communities around the island. These have led me to think more about terms like sustainable development and whether in the Caribbean these can be dealt with without addressing the wider historical issues. I for instance find some difficulty in seeing sustainable development being addressed within an industry such as tourism as it is currently organized here. How do persons here understand the term sustainable development?
