More Power to All

Sailing builds discipline, character and demands staying in tune with the elements.

This week (Monday, 17 October) GIS Spotlight gives children sea legs, gets your voice heard in the UK and helps inmates break the cycle.

Given Cayman's maritime heritage, people often wish it was promoted more actively instead of nostalgically. GIS Spotlight takes this to heart and brings you a sailing programme that provides a healthy outlet for school children at all skill levels.

Hear Minister Mark Scotland endorse the efforts by the Sailing Club that have the potential to produce future master mariners, all in an atmosphere of fun and camaraderie.

After that, GIS Spotlight brings you a new initiative now underway to help the UK hear what people in Cayman have to say about their relationship as an Overseas Territory with the mother country.

Learn how you can strengthen this collective voice by taking part in the ongoing consultative process that will help shape the UK's new White Paper 2012. See what tools you can access to have your say.

Next, we take you into Northward Prison to see rehabilitative justice at work. Watch inmates embracing literacy as a powerful tool to help get them back on track with dignity and self-esteem, qualities that can prevent a relapse into criminal activity.

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:
