PRESS RELEASE – The Department of Sustainable Development will be hosting the second annual Energy Kilo-walk this Sunday December 4, 2016.
The walk forms part of several exciting initiatives planned for this year’s programme of activities in observance of Energy Awareness Month. The Energy Awareness Month is being celebrated this year under the theme is “Sustainable Energy for Sustainable Development”.
The Kilo-Walk was a regional event planned by CARICOM to raise awareness of sustainable energy. However, the Department of Sustainable Development has since adopted this event due to its success last year, and intends to utilize the walk as an opportunity to sensitize participants on energy related issues, in particular, some of the current energy initiatives being undertaken by the Department.
The Energy Kilo-walk is scheduled to commence at the Caribbean Cinemas Car-park, and continue to the Dame Pearlette Louisy School, then up through Morne Serpent, Grande Riviere, Corinth and back unto the Castries-Gros Islet Highway and back to the Caribbean Cinemas. Once completed, participants will reassemble at the car-park where they will be treated with entertainment and educational material on energy.
The event begins at 6:00a.m. Registration is free and all registered participants will receive a T-shirt, water and light refreshments.
Interested individuals can register at the Offices of the Energy Division upstairs Caribbean Cinemas and on the morning of the walk.
The Department of Sustainable Development encourages citizens to support the walk in large numbers and help bring a grand climax to Energy Awareness Month 2016.
