GraceKennedy Foundation 2020 Annual LectureThe GraceKennedy Foundation sends this letter to you as we are aware that a lot of students were not able to attend our virtual Annual Lecture.  We recommend that the link be sent to students at the CAPE level studying business subjects, Geography and Environmental Science. We would appreciate it if you circulate this information to the teachers responsible for these subjects.

Last year Dr. Margaret Jones Williams, spoke on the topic: “The Decade of Action Begins: The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – Leaving No One Behind.” This lecture explored the adoption of the SDGs, the progress to date and the global challenges such as COVID-19, climate change and natural disasters that have already eroded the development gains. It focuses on the Small Island Developing States in the Caribbean region, which despite middle-income status and moderate to high human development indices, still experience relatively poor economic growth, high impacts from natural disasters, rising crime and gender inequity. The GraceKennedy Foundation recognizes that the SDGs should be an avenue to address these issues and that there is a need to strengthen national capacities, broaden partnerships, including with the student population, in the effort to ensure we ‘Leave No One Behind’.

The lecture book is available on our website: https://www.gracekennedy.com/wp-content/uploads/GraceKenendy-FoundationLecture-BOOK_2020.pdf .  Also, a  recording of the 2020 lecture can be found in its entirety on the GraceKennedy YouTube channel at the following link https://youtu.be/RBIIuEqfMxE.

Sincerely,
GraceKennedy Foundation
