We have an opportunity to represent Trinidad and Tobago at the prestigious ChangeNow Summit in Paris, France.

ChangeNOW 2023 is a three-day summit that brings together the most innovative solutions and impactful changemakers tackling our planet’s biggest challenges, to take action, together. ChangeNOW builds bridges between entrepreneurs, business leaders and policymakers to accelerate change. It will be held from May 25-27 2023 at the Grand Palais Euphemere, Paris France.

As a trend-setting social entrepreneur and waste educator, I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to not only highlight the work of Siel Environmental and the strides we have made in transforming the way people think and act toward waste but to also be able to represent my country on the global scale is mind-blowing! This is the FIRST time that an organization from Trinidad and Tobago has been selected and I do not take that for granted.

This FundMe TnT campaign will allow two (2) representatives (we got 3 invitations..woo hoo!) to travel to Paris, France to:
  • Promote waste management education and training, the most important intangible that often gets overlooked in the waste management space
  • Participate in institutional strengthening workshops and gain international exposure.
  • Pitch our business in front of green investors and business leaders
  • Connect and network with a bunch of global changemakers and be part of the impact ecosystem.
  • Exhibit over the course of three (3) days as part of the Seeds of Change Program among the top 50 exhibitors
Funds from this campaign will be used to cover travel expenses, accommodation and our daily per diem costs while in France.

We've budgeted $125,000 TTD or € 17,400 to cover transportation (ground and air), hotel accommodation, conference fees, food, and incidentals for this 7-day trip (May 22 – May 28 2023).
