VYBZING kicked off in Grenada as part of the agenda for the 48th Annual Meeting of the Board of Governors of the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB).
Under the theme, Climate Action Today = Food for Tomorrow, the programme engaged the youth of Grenada through a music video challenge and bootcamp.
The VYBZING Grenada Music Video Challenge, hosted by CDB in partnership with the Ministries of Education, Youth Development, Sports, Culture and the Arts, ended with three young people in winner’s row: Lyndon Pope, 27; Brandon Brathwaite, 20; and Jhavaughn Gludd, 17 who won third, second and first spots respectively. Their videos creatively explored how climate-smart agriculture can secure a sustainable future for Grenada.
Thirty young people received certificates for successfully completing the VYBZING Grenada Bootcamp. The Bootcamp ran from May 23 to 25, and concluded with the participants presenting their potential climate-smart agriculture business ideas to expert judges.
The winning team, which presented their pitch under the team name “Aqua-Refine”, shared ideas for reviving the agriculture and fisheries industry in Grenada.
