Government's Green Home

GAB Assistant Building Manager Adam McLaren monitors the building's geo-thermal energy exchange system that helps cut air-conditioning costs.

The week of Monday, 22 August GIS Spotlight focuses on the green Government Administration Building, follows interns at work and revisits the Cadet Corps.

First take a tour behind the scenes in Government's new home to see how technology is interwoven with the building's use to increase efficiency, reduce operating costs, maximise staff time management and raise government's green profile.

Learn how the building has tapped into geo-thermal sources to cut energy costs while simultaneously enhancing service and aiming for a green certification.

Next, join us to view some of government's summer interns translate their academic and theoretical skills into hands-on experience. Learn how this experience has provided them new insights into workforce dynamics.

Hear from the coordinator how this newly expanded programme has benefited 194 students this year.

Lastly, we revisit the Cayman Islands Cadet Corps to see why it inspires and motivates young people to improve their potential. Learn ways to participate in this challenging programme which relies heavily on volunteers to keep it successful.

Produced by Government Information Services, GIS Spotlight highlights government's services and solutions regarding issues that concern and affect you.

The weekly programme now airs on Cayman27 at 8:30 p.m. on Mondays, and 6:00 p.m. on Saturdays. All stories seen in this week's show can also be found on the GIS Marketing and Communications website: www.gis.ky.
