Commonwealth Youth Forum 2009

On the Caribbean Cruise - Plenaries and Thematic Workshops

After a fantastic experience in Tobago, we have now arrived on the Caribbean Cruise. And what an amazing cruise ship it is!!!!!

Plenaries and Interactive Theme sessions (Climate Change, Economic Growth, Building Sustainable Livelihoods, Youth Involvement in Decision Making and Peace Building) have been well in swing. We have had the pleasure of hearing speakers such Folade Mutota (Co-Founder, Women's Institute for Alternative Development), Andrew Fiddaman (Managing Director, The Prince's Youth Business International) and Joseph Stiglitz (Economist and Professor at Colombia University). This evening delegates are now in the process of editing the Communique ready to be presented to the Heads of Government.
