This assertion came from  Trinidad and Tobago’s Senator Fazal Karim when he delivered the feature address  at the opening of the 24th meeting of CARICOM’s Council for Social and Human Development.

Speaking to the opening of the conference via a video transmission, the Trinidadian Minister of Tertiary Education & Training said traditional method of thinking cannot suffice in this growing technological world.

He said educators must find creative ways in the delivery of the curricula to Caribbean youth.

Also addressing the opening of the conference was Minister of Culture Youth and Sports Dr. Frank Anthony. He said the meeting is expected to pass some 60 measures that will deal with the educational standards across the region.

He also restated Guyana’s commitment to the regional integration process.

According to the Assistant Secretary-General Ambassador Colin Granderson, the region’s Human and Social infrastructure is under threat and needs to be urgently reformed so that it could meet the needs of a growing region.

The meeting continues until next Tuesday where several resolutions will be adopted and will be presented to the Heads of Government for consensus approval in July.
