YSEALI GenerationGR3EN

YSEALI GenerationGR3EN Workshop is a 4-day eco-entrepreneurship workshop held in Brunei Darussalam with a focus on eco-tourism. The workshop was held from 25-28 February 2017.

The Workshop was sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, and funded through a Cooperative Agreement from the U.S. Embassy in Brunei Darussalam to AGREA for the administration of the workshop and follow-on activities which have been planned through 2017.

Background

The ASEAN region is home to four of the world’s 34 biodiversity hot spots that are characterized both by exceptional levels of plant and animal endemism. In the recent years, the ASEAN region has been undergoing dynamic transformation and modernization by a strong economic growth but driven by unsustainable practices which results to serious levels of biodiversity loss.

Therefore, with the economic growth must come the development of greener businesses in order to better sustain it.

Eco-tourism is just one opportunity that can be explored in the diverse field of eco-business. It can also serve as a platform for other opportunities in a broad range of business segments that can help drive community development by providing the alternate source of greater resilience livelihood to local communities.
