Marine team recognised for work on Blue Prosperity Plan
The Government’s marine development team has been recognised for its work with an excellence award.
The Premier, David Burt, and the Head of the Public Service, Derrick Binns, recognised the team of Tammy Warren, Andrew Petit, Sarah Manuel, Joanna Pitt, Philip Worboys, and Jirani Welch as the August recipients of the Public Service Excellence Award for its work on the Blue Prosperity Plan.
Dr Binns said: “On behalf of the Public Service Executive and myself, congratulations on your success. We look forward to seeing the fruits of your efforts with the implementation of this ground-breaking plan.”
The Blue Prosperity Plan is a two-fold plan to sustainably develop Bermuda’s ocean industries and economy while preserving marine life in fully protected areas.
Recently, the team presented Bermuda’s success in developing the island’s Blue Economy Strategy and Marine Spatial Plan at a series of events attended by key marine stakeholders, scientists, and founders of the Waitt Institute.
The PSEA is a programme which recognises public officers who are demonstrating admirable service delivery. Each month an individual or team is selected for their significant accomplishments in the past 60 days.
