OAS Country Office helps Coordinates a Series of Energy Workshops

Working with the OAS’ Department of Sustainable Development (DSD), the OAS Country Office in the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis played a pivotal role in the planning and organizing of two energy and education related workshops, held in Frigate Bay, St. Kitts, at the St. Kitts Marriott Resort.

The Second Sustainable Energy Workshop on the Caribbean Energy Awareness and Education Programme (CEEAP) was held on September 12, 2012 and the Teacher’s Sustainable Energy Workshop was held on September 13 and 14, 2012. Both events were sponsored by the Department of Sustainable Development, through its European Union funded initiative, the Caribbean Sustainable Energy Program (CSEP), in conjunction with the Energy Desk of the CARICOM Secretariat, through its initiative, Caribbean Renewable Energy Capacity Support (CRECS).

These workshops were aimed at facilitating the joint design and implementation of national education and awareness strategies on energy in the Caribbean. They were intended to further build the foundation for incorporating and raising the profile of energy in the region. Teachers were specifically invited to be part of these events so that they would have the opportunity to learn how to integrate a set of modules on sustainable energy into their classrooms. In this connection, material created by the Caribbean Energy Awareness and Education Programme (CEEAP), were distributed to teachers with the understanding that they would be utilized by Caribbean Ministries of Education, in coordination with the Ministries responsible for Energy as practical tools during the staging of National Energy Weeks, in Member Countries.

Delegates at both events were drawn from OAS member countries in the Caribbean to include, Antigua and Barbuda, Bahamas, Dominica, Grenada, St. Lucia, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
