A journalists' workshop is being organized by Professor Vishnu Persaud of the University of the West Indies. It is expected to take place in either January or February in Barbados. Journalists and editors from around the world will be invited to focus on the issues and the importance of media attention to the issues raised by the Conference. There is also the possibility that a second workshop will be conducted a few days before the Conference itself, depending on funding.
