Kevin Adair works to save the rainforests of the Caribbean through international social and ecological development. It is Kevin’s quest to co-create, introduce, evaluate, foster, promote, facilitate, encourage and verify social/ecological development in Haiti and the Dominican Republic. Join us virtually as Kevin discusses his mission and the reasoning behind it.

Kevin founded the social-eco enterprise, FdS Haiti, to facilitate ecologically and socially beneficial development in Haiti and the Dominican Republic. Through the FdS developmental model, local people are consulted and empowered throughout the R & D and implementation process in a Co-Creation model.

Kevin holds a Double BA with Honors from Illinois Wesleyan University, with continuing education credits from the National Geographic Society Geotourism Ambassador Training, Los Fondos de Capital, un Mecanismo de Financiamiento de Empresas presented by the INCAE, and the UN Foundation’s Women’s Empowerment Fund Training of Trainers where Kevin was awarded the Accolade of ‘Most Engaging.’ Kevin is a featured Social Entrepreneur from SOCAP 14. FdS Haiti is a 2014 Buckminster Fulller Award Semi-finalist and a 2015 Echoing Green Semi-Finalist. The FdS Haiti is the current IADB IDEAS competition winner for the Caribbean region.
