SU-EFC staff members in Puerto Rico are assisting with the activities of the Vieques Sustainability Task Force (VSTF), which focuses on island-wide regenerative development after more than six decades of the island being used as a US/NATO military bombing range.

SU-EFC works with VSTF on:

  • Advancing sustainable/regenerative economic redevelopment, job creation, environmental stewardship, and ecotourism;
  • Developing and facilitating VSTF meetings; and
  • Providing waste reduction, recycling, and green building technical assistance to island municipal leaders, developers, and businesses.
