Friday, November 27, 2009 – Young people will be the focus of this year’s Caribbean Media Exchange meeting (CMEx), which will be held in Saint Lucia from the 3rd to the 7th of December.

In a press statement, CMEx organisers noted that getting the youth involved early in tourism, has always been a priority for the drive to sustainable tourism.

Teacher at the International School of Saint Lucia Tracy George, will lead a group of hospitality and tourism students at next month's CMEx meeting, in search of solutions to sustain Saint Lucia`s tourism industry.

She says she is very concerned about tourism's sustainability and looks forward to the innovative and networking aspects of CMEx to enlighten both her and the students of the school.

The delegates attending the meeting are also expected to examine how to "climate proof" Caribbean tourism as well as build resilience into a recessionary environment

This year's Caribbean Media Exchange (CMEx) will be held under the theme "Multicultural Marketing: A Climate for Change".

The conference will pay tribute to former CNN News Anchor and CMEx facilitator, the late Andria Hall.

The upcoming CMEx meeting is supported by the Ministry of Tourism and Civil Aviation along with the Saint Lucia Tourist Board and other partners.
