Our educational services include Internet training based on
sustainability, along with an Internet knowledge base for sustainability including
bioloiteracy, biodiversity conservation, agriculture, aquaculture, Maya heritage,
landscape architecture, marine conservation, and tourism.
Youth in the developing world face a challenging employment
environment unless provided with knowledge based skills.
A key program of Sustainability America is the training of talented
and environmentally concerned youth in website design, search engine optimisation, and the use of
marketing analysis tools. This training is based around our wide range of sustainability
projects, with exemplification through this web site,
commercial websites, and journal and social networking

Bioliteracy is the knowledge of biodiversity and
its environment that enables us to understand and
appreciate our natural heritage. Bioliteracy provides a knowledge base and foundation
for creating a sustainable future and addressing current

The Sartenejan Region is
vegetated by Semi-deciduous Rainforest, which is the most threatened forest community in
Central America. Semi-deciduous Rainforest is characterised
by heavy leaf fall during the 4 month dry season with
some trees entirely loosing their leaves.
Many animals and plant species are dependent on
the Semi-deciduous Rainforest around Sartenejan for their survival.
There is much to learn about the conservation of
Semi-Deciduous rainforest and its biodiversity from studying the mosaic of
uncleared, partially cleared, and cleared areas in the Sartenejan
A particularly interesting aspect of biodiversity
conservation and sustainable management of the Semi-Decidious rainforest of Sarteneja and the
Yucatan is that it would have been mostly cleared by the Maya Civilisation. Therefore, its
biodiversity has been adapted to a fragmented landscape.
The Central American region has been
inhabited for approximately 26,000 years. High population densities, among the highest recorded for
any pre-industrial civilisation, were maintained by the Maya in Belize, the Yucatan Peninsula,
and Guatemala, between 1500 BC to 1400 AD. Therefore, from both a cultural perspective
and an environmental perspective, the recognition and understanding of Maya civilisation and
landscape use will provide both a sense of cultural identity and a guide toward the sustainable
management of the region.
To provide the future drivers of sustainability,
children must be bonded to nature at an early age of between 4 -6 years according to current
behavioural information. We work closely with a range of international programs to foster and
develop programs for emotional bonding, and to extend these programs to the Central American and
is an integral part of Sustainability, and this concept must be deeply embedded in individual
morals and cultural norms, to achieve long term goals.
