Island Innovation is proud to announce our partnership with the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) towards the hosting of a two-day event in Saint Lucia in September 2020, expected to convene over 700 regional and international delegates.
The inaugural Sustainable Development Movement (SDM 2020), hosted by the OECS and scheduled to be held at the Royalton Resort and Spa, will create a common space where International Development Partners, the Private Sector, Academia, Caribbean Governments and the general public can meet to exchange thoughts, best practices, untold stories and strategies concerning sustainable growth and development.
The OECS is an inter-governmental organisation dedicated to economic harmonisation and integration, protection of human and legal rights, and the encouragement of good governance between countries and territories in the Eastern Caribbean. The member of OECS include: Antigua & Barbuda, Anguilla, the British Virgin Islands, Dominica, Grenada, Guadeloupe, Martinique, Montserrat, Saint Kitts & Nevis, Saint Lucia and Saint Vincent & the Grenadines.
Why Attend?
SDM 2020 was designed using a novel approach that is guided by two basic schools of thought:
  1. Sustainable development cannot take place without the engagement of minds and a renewal of the psyche that takes the common man from the realm of limitations to the realm of possibilities.
  2. In order to obtain development that is sustained, the engagement of the private sector and the business community is paramount.

SDM 2020 promises to deliver the following value:

  • Facilitate dialogue and agitate action towards sustainable development that has people at the core of development strategies.
  • Expose key development challenges affecting Small Island Development States and present cutting edge and novel solutions.
  • Connect participants with over 700 delegates as the event is poised to be a networker’s dream come through. Connect with International Development Partners, Global Power Brokers, Investors, Academia, Heads of State, your peers, industry experts to find fresh solutions, evolve your organisation and become great!
  • Access to practical tools and winning strategies to aid growth and development in nations, businesses and even person lives…
  • Take participants in the realm of the “know” by exposure to trends and innovations in development financing.
  • An opportunity to swim with the “People’s Shark”, Daymond John, and experience the live Pitch Room. In addition to this, obtain the opportunity to connect with Venture Capitalists and other investors from around the world.

It is with this realization that SDM 2020 will attract and drive change among over 700 delegates from across the Caribbean and internationally.

Who should attend?

Leaders, Development Partners, Entrepreneurs, Sustainable Development Practitioners, Project Managers, Civil Society, Heads of Government, Public Sector, Private Sector, Investors (Investors, Private Equity Financiers), Academia, Students, persons seeking investment opportunities and anyone who wants to be great!
