Lilian Chatterjee, High Commissioner of Canada to Saint Kitts and Nevis, Ms. Dunerci Caceres, Chief of Staff in the Minister’s Office, and Ms. Jessica Mackie, Senior Political Advisor, High Commission of Canada.

As part of her visit, Hon. Marcie Ien participated in an insightful Open Dialogue organized by the St. Kitts National Youth Parliament Association (SKNYPA) focused on “Youth-Led Initiatives: Fostering Civic Engagement for Climate Action and Empowerment.”

The event  took place at the Parliament Lounge and attendees included Hon. Isalean Phillip, SKNYPA’s President Hasani McDonald, Vice President Jalen Monzac, Immediate Past President Mauriel Knight, and other general members of the SKNYPA.

The discussion proved to be a dynamic and thought-provoking one, with participants actively sharing questions, solutions, and recommendations.

Following the dialogue, Hon. Marcie Ien expressed her appreciation by presenting tokens of recognition to the President and Vice President of SKNYPA.

In return, the Association offered a token of appreciation to Hon. Ien which included a compiled list of resolutions and bills debated by the Association from 2020 until the present, symbolizing the collaborative spirit between the Canadian delegation and SKNYPA.

Special thanks are extended to Vice President Jalen Monzac for facilitating and organizing the dialogue, and Deputy Clerk Mauriel Knight for organizing a tour of the National Assembly Chambers that preceded the engaging discussion.

The visit of Hon. Marcie Ien and the Canadian delegation marks a significant milestone in fostering international collaboration and empowering youth-led initiatives for climate action in St. Kitts and Nevis.
