Digital Inclusion in the Caribbean

Digital Inclusion in the Caribbean

Invitation to Participate Courtesy The World Bank

Make your voice heard and get a chance to be featured on the World Bank website and on social media! Send pictures, videos, or your thoughts by email or by a tweet to @WBCaribbean on the importance of the Digital Economy in the Eastern Caribbean.

What we are looking for:

  • Share with us why you think that increased access to digital services, technologies, and skills is important for these Eastern Caribbean countries.
  • Feel free to send your thoughts in an email, or you could take a picture where your thoughts are legibly expressed on a printed or handwritten sign. BUT, videos where you have your say are preferred.
  • Videos and photos should be high resolution, and videos shouldn't be longer than 1 minute. For written submissions, 10-30 words are ideal. Feel free to be creative and bear in mind that there will be an international audience.

Who we are looking for:

  • Contributions from a diverse group of people from Dominica, Grenada, Saint Lucia, and St Vincent and the Grenadines.

Tips for Video Submissions:

  • Horizontally filmed (not vertical)
  • Frame includes the head, shoulders and upper torso 
  • Find a spot where the light comes from the front, so the face isn't backlit (no windows in back unless you have a good front light to counter it)
  • Looking into the camera
  • No background noise
  • Look for a neutral background, but one with some personality

How to send your submission:

  • Send an email to cwright2@worldbank.org with your content, your name and your country. Videos may be large, consider sending them through a file-sharing programme like WeTransfer or Dropbox. 
  • Send your submission by June 15 ( a grace period of two additional days until June 17 has been applied. )

*Note that by contributing to this project, the World Bank may use your content in communication efforts on various channels and that it may be edited to conform to space and other constraints.

About The Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States

Back to www.oecs.int

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 eleven 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, Martinique and Guadeloupe.
