Save the JET SEP Programme
The longest-running programme of its kind
in Jamaica, SEP provides young Jamaicans with the best opportunity for learning

The Jamaica Climate Change Youth Council stands in strong support of the Jamaica Environment Trust‘s SEP initiative, and we are greatly disappointed at the talks of restricting funding. We are appealing for the powers that be to reconsider the defunding of such an initiative, for the sake of young people across Jamaica.
We are the generation that must live with the realities of climate change and environmental degradation. By discontinuing the SEP programme, you will be taking away the best opportunity we have to make meaningful change on environmental issues and rescue our country from the inevitable effects of a changing climate.
