Trinidad and Tobago hosts International TST Forum and TST Task Force Meeting, November 2004

The past was changed by inhumanities,
The present influenced by past atrocities,
The future will be changed by our attitudes,
Let’s work to improve the state of our world today.


So concluded the Youth Declaration drafted by the young participants at the TST International Youth Forum was held from 12-16 November 2004, in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad and Tobago. The Sixth International TST Task Force Meeting followed the Youth Forum on 17 November.

The Forum involved experts, resource persons and teacher and student representatives of countries from Africa, the Americas, the Caribbean and Europe.
