Acting Governor Joshua Tenorio said, “The process of developing the GSP 2050 includes a consortium of public and private experts with diverse planning experience and expertise who will provide guidance for Guam's social and economic development for the next 25 years. We are embarking on long-range planning to bring more sustainable development and growth to Guam’s future, including responsible use and protection of Guam’s resources for its people. We will lean on subject matter experts in commercial, agricultural, industrial, and cultural arenas to help us develop a plan that includes input from those who will benefit the most – our residents.”

During the GSP 2050 community engagements, facilitators will lead participants through key discussion topics: thriving environment, prosperous economy, sustainable community, and vibrant culture. 

Lt. Governor Joshua Tenorio added, “It’s imperative that we begin planning now for the next 25 years and take the right steps along the way to preserve and protect our natural resources. We continue to find avenues for recovery and development, and we are committed to employing sustainable and responsible development practices as we move forward. This plan is designed to help our island move into a more sustainable future for the next generation of Guam residents while aligning with the United Nations Global Programme of Action for the Sustainable Development of Small Island Developing States.”


The GSP 2050 events will provide opportunities for the community to come together to help design a more sustainable future for Guam as it relates to the economy, environment, community, and culture.  The plan will be developed in phases, the first of which welcomes input from residents. During the talks, attendees can share their feedback on what should be included in the plan and their motivating priorities. 

Lola Leon Guerrero, Director of the BSP, said, “We are developing this plan in phases, the first of which is to let our community know that we are strategically working on a sustainability plan for Guam and their ideas are valuable to the development of this plan.”


Director Leon Guerrero added, “We invite all residents to join us for these important community engagement events and directly influence future policies and initiatives for Guam’s growth. Also, it will be interesting for our community to learn more about how the plan will be developed and how they can play a part in the visioning process.”

There is no cost to participate, and reservations are not required. Refreshments will be served at the events. For more information, residents can visit the GSP 2050 website at or send an email to
