Caymanian Taura Ebanks has travelled to the UK to take part in the third Atlantic Youth Forum.
The Centre for the Education and Development of Human Rights Foundation, with assistance from Campbells Attorneys-at-Law, sent Taura as a delegate to the Wilton Park conference.
Taura has, according to a press release, been involved with community work such as Junior Achievement for several years and with writing articles for political youth awareness.
She has been employed with FedEx as its local account executive for the last four and a half years.
The aim of the conference is to provide an opportunity for young adults from America, Canada, Europe and the British Overseas Territories to gain insights into each others’ concerns, says the release.
The five day course covered a range of political, social and other issues and featured a visit to the Houses of Parliament.
‘We are pleased to support Taura as she takes advantage of this unique opportunity,’ said Ross McDonough, a partner of Campbells.
‘This will become an annual event and will help expose what I hope will become our future leaders, to international relations and the common security, political and environmental issues that we face,’ said Nick Robson, one of the founding members of the CEDHR Foundation.
James Stenning, another founding member of CEDHR was equally pleased for Taura and said ‘that CEDHR is keen to provide opportunities for young Caymanians and residents to attend conferences like this so as to enable them to exchange ideas and observations with other countries youth on such things as democracy, good government and constitutional development.’
