The Republic of Suriname is situated on the northeastern Atlantic coast of South America and has the unique distinction of being designated by the World Bank as the most forested country in the world , with almost 93% of its land area being covered by the lush Amazon forests. A Green Hope team ,comprising of members from Dubai , Oman and Canada were invited by the Cabinet of the President of the Republic of Suriname to support the involvement of Surinamese youth in building a roadmap for the implementation of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and to draw international attention to support the position of Suriname as the most forested country in the world.
Green Hope’s mission was to support Suriname by creating awareness amongst the local youth by using Education for Sustainable Development ( ESD ) as a transformative tool to educate and empower them so that they could take local actions in mitigating the impacts of climate change and protect their rich natural heritage for future generations .
