To complement the Regional events and activities, Member States will host national events and activities. These will vary from country to country and include, inter alia: High-Level Panel Discussions in which government officials speak on country-specific energy matters; spot questions (with prizes) and energy tips on radio; engagements – such as Forums – with schools; and field trips to in-country renewable energy sites. The national events and activities are expected to focus the attention of the country on local matters with which they are familiar and will provide a fillip for the Regional activities. The Energy Unit of the CARICOM Secretariat will provide support to Member States for the planning and hosting of national events and activities.
