A fourth phase of the internet-based youth forum started in March and will run until the end of the year. This forum is available for viewing at http://www.sivyouth.org (with user name view and password only).

Schools from the following islands and their students are involved in the fourth phase of the forum: Bahamas, Cuba, Dominica, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, San Andres Archipelago in the Caribbean; Maldives, Mauritius and Seychelles in the Indian Ocean; Cook Islands, Fiji and Palau in the Pacific. Other islands are also expressing interest and will be encouraged to participate.

Three main themes are being discussed in the first instance:

  • Changes I would like to see in my island (this is a continuation of a theme started in Phase 3)
  • Can young people make changes happen?
  • What if a tsunami hit my island?

Youth are also invited to submit other themes for discussion.
