IWC Alumnus procures dream job in Indonesia
Barefoot Conservation is a new and exciting, not-for-profit organisation that takes a fresh look at marine conservation and community awareness. Its focus is grass roots conservation and community action, engaging, educating and empowering the local community to make sustainable conservation a way of life.
Jeremy runs the community development aspects of a project which is increases understanding of crucial marine environments in Raja Ampat, Indonesia while simultaneously giving back to the communities that rely on them.
"One of the crucial concepts that I learned at IWC that I am applying with Barefoot Conservation is in regard to how to approach the concept of ‘aid’," Jeremy said.
"As a key designer of community projects, I ensure that all stakeholders' desires, aspirations, and concerns are taken on board before a project is set to go forward.
"Broadly, I will help improve societies by working with them to protect their environment, and in turn, improve their health and their livelihoods. I feel very fortunate to be taking such a big step in that direction so early in my career."
