OECS to host Environmental Exhibit and Fair from April 25th

The Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS), in collaboration with the Ministry of Education, Human Resources and the Environment in Grenada, will be hosting Climate Fest, an Environmental Exhibition and Fair from April 25th 2017 at the Radisson Grenada Beach Resort. The Fest is open to the public and seeks to raise awareness on the need for adaptation and mitigation programs to combat climate change.

The central theme of the exhibition is “Accelerating Sustainable Development: Addressing Challenges, Creating Opportunities.” The various exhibitor displays will demonstrate the main climate change challenges being faced by the region and some of the coping strategies being implemented.

Exhibitions will be presented in a ‘green atmosphere’ with vibrant displays and simulated gardens to embody the theme of climate change and sustainable development.

The official opening ceremony for the Exhibition will be held at 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday April 26th 2017. Exhibition displays will end on Thursday, April 27th 2017.

The 2017 Climate Fest in Grenada follows a successful Climate Fest held in Dominica in 2016.

The event is being held to coincide with the fourth meeting of the Council of Ministers of Environmental Sustainability, which is scheduled to take place on April 27-28th 2017 at the Radisson Hotel, Grenada.

The Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) is an International Organisation dedicated to economic harmonisation and integration, protection of human and legal rights, and the encouragement of good governance among independent and non-independent countries in the Eastern Caribbean. The OECS came into being on June 18th 1981, when seven Eastern Caribbean countries signed a treaty agreeing to cooperate with each other while promoting unity and solidarity among its Members. The Treaty became known as the Treaty of Basseterre, so named in honour of the capital city of St. Kitts and Nevis where it was signed. The OECS today, currently has ten members, spread across the Eastern Caribbean comprising Antigua and Barbuda, Commonwealth of Dominica, Grenada, Montserrat, St. Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, St Vincent and The Grenadines, British Virgin Islands, Anguilla and Martinique.
