OECS Commission to host Youth Forum on Education

This FREE event is open to all youth and students under the age of 30!

As the OECS Commission prepares to host the 6th Council of Ministers of Education Meeting, the engagement and contribution of youth has once again come to the forefront. In the lead up to the Council Meeting, the Commission will host its OECS Youth Forum on Education, slated for Thursday January 28th from 2pm-4pm via Zoom. 

The Forum will provide an opportunity for youth and students to discuss the plethora of issues they face in Education, while recommending solutions to these issues. Matters such as Innovation in Education, School Curriculum and the impact of the COVID 19 pandemic on Education are expected to be keenly discussed. 

Participants will then get the opportunity to present these recommendations to the OECS Ministers of Education Meeting in February. The Youth Forum will adopt the theme of the Ministers Meeting, "Sustainable Education: Collaborative Policies and Practices for the Future".

The Youth Forum on Education is a free event that is open to all youth and students across the OECS under the age of 30.

About The Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States

Back to

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.
