Backchat Newsletter

The Backchat programme seeks 'to lend a voice to the many problems facing the Federation' using existing and new media. The print media are being used to produce newsletters that include articles, poems, letters to the editor and puzzles to highlight key issues.

The first issue of the Backchat newsletter, published in May 2004, focused on Crime and Violence: Where does it begin and where does it end? This topic is a very relevant one in St. Kitts and Nevis and relates back to an opinion survey of the general public that was conducted by youth in 2002. This survey found that increased crime and violence was the most pressing issue of concern to the general public.

The second edition of the Back Chat newsletter, published in November 2004, focused on the preparations for the Meeting for Small Island Developing States held in January 2005 in Mauritius, and on the two youth who would be representing the Federation at Youth Visioning for Island Living.
