The Caribbean Alumni Network arranges a get-together at least once a year to catch up and discuss what we can do to support IDS throughout the following year. This usually occurs in February so we can celebrate with any new alumni their recent graduation and invite prospective students to join us.
The Caribbean region includes: Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda, Aruba, Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Cuba, Dominica, Dominican Republic, Grenada, Guadeloupe, Guyana, Haiti, Jamaica, Martinique, Montserrat, Netherlands Antilles, Puerto Rico, Saint Barthelemy, Saint Kitts & Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Martin, Saint Vincent, Trinidad & Tobago, Turks & Caicos Islands and US Virgin Islands.
Last year, alumni organised IDS50 events across the world to celebrate IDS’s 50th anniversary. To promote similar events within the region, the IDS alumni office is keen to provide support for us to organise and hold seminars about the Sustainable Development Goals and initiatives within the Caribbean diaspora.
Through this online portal, issues impacting the Caribbean region such as sustainable development, governance, trade, private sector development, climate change, environmental protection, social protection, finance and labour are addressed.
Multimedia context is also available for research purposes.
