The objective of the UNESCO chair are: “To become an open center of collaborative excellence in the field of policy-oriented research on issues of Sustainable Development of SIDS in the context of globalization of the Caribbean, leveraging on the unique insights that can be provided by knowledge production processes based on participatory research, involving stakeholders in the Sustainable Development of SIDS.”

The conference will be held during the famous carnival season. As part of the programme participants will attend the three most important parades. In this way they will be part of the experience economy and the creatives economy of the Curaçao.
