Heritage Awali Golf & Spa Resort Helps Young People Build a Sustainable Future

Heritage Awali Golf & Spa Resort recently hosted a conference focused on Sustainable Development Goal 4: Quality Education. This event brought together students, teachers, and expert speakers to have an open discussion about the importance of quality education in achieving sustainability.


Educating Businesses and the Public

One of the keynote speakers was Vivian King, the founder of Sustainable Mauritius. Vivian emphasized the need to educate businesses and the public about adopting sustainable practices. This is crucial for preserving Mauritius' natural and cultural heritage, especially as the tourism industry continues to grow on the island.


Law student Simran Ishmani Hurrit shared her perspective on how quality education can drive social change and promote inclusivity. She noted that while progress has been made, there are still gaps that need to be addressed, and using social media can help bridge these divides.


Heritage's Sustainability Initiatives

The sustainability team from Heritage Resorts & Golf took the stage to showcase the group's commitment to sustainable development. They explained the meaning of sustainability and highlighted two key initiatives: La Boutique Solidaire & Literacy Program. The team outlined the necessity of training and awareness sessions on sustainability for team members, to empower employees to make a positive impact on the environment and their communities.

Future Projects

The team also shared details about future projects, including coral restoration efforts and the upcoming marine education center. These efforts demonstrate Heritage Resorts & Golf's dedication to environmental stewardship and education.


Hands-on Learning at the World of Seashells Museum

The conference was complemented by a visit to the World of Seashells Museum, where visitors can learn about the science and diversity of shells and marine life preservation.


A Student's Perspective

One student attendee shared their takeaway from the event: "I saw how my own country is working to achieve the Sustainability Development Goals. After seeing the team at Heritage Awali, I have a vision of the kind of place I want to work in - one that contributes to sustainable development for a better tomorrow."
