The OECS Sustainable Development Movement presents the Think Tank on April 29

Register now to learn from innovators and their journeys to the top!

Monday, March 29, 2021 — The inaugural OECS Think Tank, etched in the theme: “Forged in Crisis – The Stories of Innovators and their Journey to the Top” is positioned to bring together over 2,000 entrepreneurs for an immersive networking experience on April 29, 2021 from 10am - 1:30pm AST.

Within the context of the post-pandemic world, the need to push development initiatives into overdrive is apparent. Innovation is fuel that allows Large Ocean Economies, like those of the Caribbean region, to stand out. The OECS aspires to fast-track the Eastern Caribbean Economic Union through disruptions, solid innovations and agility thereby fostering exponential growth and inclusion for all.

The Think Tank space will connect growth-stage and highly successful entrepreneurs of like interests and inclinations in an environment conducive to networking, growth, shared visioning, and the potential to mushroom into partnerships.

These highly successful entrepreneurs will share inspirational personal success stories that have been curated on their respective journeys through Keynote Presentations; High-Impact Fire Side Chats; Side-Bars and Entertainment.

About the Sustainable Development Movement:

The Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States conceptualised and hosted the inaugural OECS Sustainable Development Movement (SDM) Summit in September 2020 under the theme: Create. Innovate. Deliver. Sustain. The Summit, the first and largest event of its type in the region, created a space where leaders from around the world converged to have dialogue about and agitate action towards innovative sustainable development and growth.

SDM2020 created new channels of cooperation and laid the foundation for strong multi-stakeholder partnerships involving Governments, private sector, development partners, community and civic organisations in a more inclusive and cohesive manner than ever before. All sectors recognised that our survival as a Caribbean civilization depended on our capacity and determination to work together.

The 2021 iteration of the SDM Summit is positioned to fast-track the fruition of the Eastern Caribbean Economic Union through disruptions, solid innovations and agility thereby fostering exponential growth and inclusion for all. The main motivations of the SDM2021 is nestled in the agile manifesto which precludes:

  • Meaningful partnerships over processes and tools
  • Action and impact over comprehensive documentation
  • Collaboration over contract negotiation
  • Responding change over sticking to the plan

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.
