Island Journeys

The Impact of the Island Way of Life at Home and Abroad

By: Carlisle Richardson

Traverse the globe in Island Journeys. Explore rich and varied cultures.

As island-states and diasporas struggle to maintain a connection to their native lands, learn what continues to unite them. Whether you come from a nation of millions, or an island that seems to disappear on a world map, you will find invaluable insights to better your understanding of the world you live in. Island Journeys explains how to:

  • Remain close to your roots, whether you live in your homeland or on the other side of the world
  • Embrace common bonds and preserve what is important, amidst a rapidly changing cultural and economic landscape
  • Make a world of difference by simply being yourself. Sometimes people from the smallest islands can touch the world, in powerful and unexpected ways

Let Carlisle Richardson, an islander and economic affairs officer for the United Nations, share the discoveries from island nations around the world that helped him establish the Island Foundation, an organization that aims to promote education, the arts, sports, and innovation while preserving island culture and heritage.
