Information is Key

Information Commissioner's Office and Information Manager Christina Smith at work.

This week (Monday, 26 September) GIS Spotlight celebrates your right to know, follows youth at work and takes you on a celestial journey.

Information is key to being assured that government is working properly to serve you. Join us and learn about all the opportunities on offer for empowering yourself during this year's Right to Know Week.

Get to know the tools available under the Freedom of Information Law to access government records, discover how people can better understand government, and see how the law has made a difference.

Next, follow some government summer interns as they put their academic and theoretical skills into practice. Learn how this experience has offered them new insights into workforce dynamics, and hear how this newly expanded programme benefited 194 students.

After that, we revisit the heavens. Join us at the University College of the Cayman Islands where a home is being built for a donated telescope, which aims to bring you the universe and expand your horizons.

Hear what is planned in science and astronomy lessons for students and the entire community to put the state-of-the-art equipment to maximum use.

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:
