Blue Island Charter

in Community Insight

In a landmark moment, the Blue Islands Charter – an idea born in Gibraltar – was signed by Overseas Territories and Crown Dependencies present at a recent meeting in Alderney.

Gibraltar, Alderney, Guernsey, Jersey, Sark, Montserrat and Tristan da Cunha  signed the document, and the Charter will make its way to collect the remaining signatures, before returning to the Rock for a future Blue Islands Summit.

The Charter commits the governments of these territories to protect the seas around them, and commit to environmental protection on land and sea.

Gibraltar continues to play an important role in environmental protection among the British family of Overseas Territories and Crown Dependencies, with John Cortes being co-Chair of the UK Overseas Territories’ Environment Ministers’ Council.
