Hands Across the Sand 2018

On Saturday, May 19th at noon, Belizeans around the country joined hands on beaches, across bridges, in conference rooms, along sea walls and in other public areas to celebrate Belize's historic decision to implement an indefinite offshore oil moratorium to safeguard its natural resources. The event is also a unique platform to promote clean energy alternatives to fossil fuels.

Every year, patriotic Belizeans and nature lovers from across all sectors of society join hands to promote a clean energy future across the world and to end our dependence on fossil fuels in world-wide solidarity events. Belize was one of 117 countries to organize Hands Across the Sand events world-wide. This year saw the participation of hundreds of residents from Orange Walk town, Dangriga, Belize City, Placencia, Corozal Town, San Ignacio, Hopkins, Sarteneja, Punta Gorda, Caye Caulker, San Pedro and Belmopan.

"Belize continues to make headlines for the right reason because we said no to offshore oil in our marine environment. The reality is that the tens of thousands of Belizeans who continue to stand in solidarity in support of the moratorium recognize that the law safeguards the stability of coasts, our fisheries and our economy through tourism; our quality of life." said Janelle Chanona, Oceana Belize's Vice President. "This decision by the Belizean Government and people therefore makes Belize a global leader not just in coral reef protection, but most importantly, of the people who depend on them."
