This article entitled “Owning the Ca­ribbean: sustainable development, innovation and entrepreneurship” was written within the framework of the first Caribbean Youth Forum or­ganized by Caribbean Universities in November 2018. This is a comparati­ve study between the young people of Martinique and Saint Lucia to de­monstrate their degree of participa­tion in the environmental policy of their respective countries. To what ex­tent can education about sustainable development and strategies for re­sistance to climate change be an im­portant element to improve the envi­ronment of these Caribbean islands? Urdine Darius analyzes the solutions proposed by young entrepreneurs and asks about the strategies to be implemented for a more innovative management of the environment in Martinique and Saint Lucia.
