Systemic Innovation in St Helena – Niall O’Keeffe
The community of St Helena is a very resilient one. Because of its isolation, everybody must develop the skills required for the island’s sustainably, innovative development and survival. With support from the Association of Overseas Countries and Territories, we are to systematically capture the knowledge and information that is available to the community through a series of networks and also by working in closer cooperation on the island.
We are doing with multiple methods and systems, primarily overseen by the Governor and the Government. Investment has been put in to support a process where all sectors are represented, all information shared, and ideas tested, engaged and prioritised for the benefit of sustainable growth of St Helena’s economy and in particular, of the tourism sector which we are working to promote.
