Minister of Youth, Family and Sports, Dr. Esther Byer Suckoo
Young Barbadians will soon get another opportunity to express their views on various issues affecting them and this country.
A Youth Leaders’ Dialogue to highlight Caribbean Youth Day has been planned for this Wednesday, September 30, in the main conference room of the Ministry of Education. Minister of Youth, Family and Sports, Dr. Esther Byer Suckoo, will deliver an address.
"Youth Mainstreaming, Critical to Sustainable Development" is the theme of this year’s celebrations and the dialogue will allow the young people to share their perspectives. At the end of the session, a report will be prepared, which will be sent to the Commonwealth Youth Programme Caribbean Centre, so the views and recommendations can be shared with decision-makers at upcoming regional and international meetings.
Since 1985, Caribbean Youth Day has been observed across the region on September 30. Countries are encouraged to host various activities on the day to showcase the positive developments and achievements of their young people.
