About us

In 1979, a group of concerned citizens, including architects, engineers and private citizens, began promoting a greater understanding for Trinidad and Tobago's heritage. In 1985, following the public outcry over the intended demolition of the "George Brown House" on the Queen's Park Savannah in Port of Spain, Citizens for Conservation was formed to provide an official voice for the protection of Trinidad and Tobago's natural and man-made heritage. Through open discussion they sought to sensitize the public to the importance of conservation and preservation.

Through the efforts of Citizens for Conservation the National Trust Act of Trinidad and Tobago was drafted and passed by Parliament in 1991 and eventually enacted in 1999. Their present aim is to provide support for the National Trust of Trinidad and Tobago as well as other interested groups and to lobby as the need arises for the respect, protection and preservation of the many aspects Trinidad and Tobago's heritage.
