A call to Action

A coalition of Caribbean non-governmental organizations has joined partners around the world in a campaign to lobby governments to adopt and pursue people-centered agendas.

Under a movement called Action 2015, the Caribbean Policy Development Centre (CPDC) has teamed up with NGOs in over 100 other countries to wage the campaign which is about promoting a better future.

The Action 2015 group in Barbados held a walk through Queens Park on Thursday night and CPDC Executive Director Shantal Munro-Knight urged others to come on board as they fight to bring an end to poverty and equality and push for policy actions to fight climate change.

“We are not doing it in Barbados alone,” she said.

CEO of the Barbados Agriculture Society James Paul threw his support behind the movement.

“I think we have reached the stage in our communities where there needs to be a level of individual responsibility for change. Action 2015 speaks to that and the fact that our young people are influencing that process is extremely important.” he said. (DB)
