Posted in: Regional News by admin | 15 March 2015 | 5065
The University of the West Indies in conjunction with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and The United Nations in Trinidad and Tobago is hosting a ‘Forum on The Future of the Caribbean: Disruptive thinking. Bold action. Practical outcomes’.
The Forum will be held from 5-7 May in Trinidad and Tobago.
The forum, the first of its kind in the Caribbean, brings together political leaders, academia, private sector leaders, young shapers, civil society and policymakers to engage in a vigorous debate and discussion under the name of: Disruptive Thinking. Bold Action. Practical Outcomes. Caribbean Heads of State and international thought leaders from the US, Nigeria, Malta, the United Kingdom and Chile will be among those present at the event.
In a world of rapidly emerging global processes, Caribbean competitiveness calls for the creation of a new convergence framework and innovative solutions to tackle these demands. Exciting and unexpected solutions must be found to re-ignite growth and address financial difficulties whilst balancing the social and environmental needs of all constituents.
In this context, the Caribbean Future Forum presents an occasion to take inspiration from the financial world and the private sector with a view to building a unique space for discussion around new academic and policy solutions in order to lead to new strategies and commitment to the challenges of Caribbean Small Island Developing States (SIDS).
There are seven main Forum themes:
- Global Convergence: A Place for the Caribbean
- Location Strategies for the Caribbean: Convergence of Ideas and of Ideals
- Building the Resilience of Small States: A Strategic Vision for the Caribbean 2050
- Multi-dimensional Progress to Tackle Poverty and Inequality
- Solutions to Sustainable Development Issues in High and Middle Income Caribbean Countries
- New Diplomacy for Strengthening Financial Capacities and New Global Compact
- Global Diplomacy in the Caribbean
