Panos stimulates informed and inclusive public debate around key development issues in order to foster sustainable development. We are working to promote an enabling media and communications environment worldwide. Our aim is to ensure that the perspectives of the people whose lives are most affected by development (mainly the poor and marginalized) are included within decision-making and that decisions are subject to their scrutiny and debate. Our priority issues are: media and communications, globalization, HIV/AIDS, environment and conflict. We see gender as integral to all these.
The Panos Institute Caribbean is a regional organization that works to strengthen civil society by helping journalists to cover sustainable development issues that are overlooked and misunderstood, in particular those whose impact transcends national boundaries.
Panos coordinates seminars and production of print, broadcast and electronic materials on themes such as child rights, HIV/AIDS, environmental degradation, gender issues and community solutions to development challenges. Panos undertakes these activities in partnerships with local and regional associations, journalists and NGOs.
Additionally, Panos fosters regional alliances and cross-border collaboration among journalists. Panos Caribbean, through investigative teams, targets trans-border issues, collaborating both on the ground and via electronic networks. Panos allows reporters to work across political and language borders and produce new perspectives on under-reported stories. Media based organization, Education, Assist others to advocate.
