My Island – My Community is a unique network of organizations committed to using the power of communications to enhance knowledge sharing, engage the public and directly support CBA activities (Community Based Adaption) across the nine countries of the Eastern Caribbean. My Island – My Community is a partnership of Media Impact, the Secretariat of the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS), The Nature Conservancy (TNC), GEF Small Grants Programme, implemented by UNDP (GEF SGP), Global Island Partnership (GLISPA), the Secretariat for the Convention on Biological Diversity (SCBD), BirdLife International, Durrell, SeaWeb and the St. Lucia Folk Research Center.

My Island - My Community will hold a two-week regional capacity building workshop for national partners, producers, directors, and writers on how to develop a communications strategy and serial drama for social change. Further, the workshop will provide core training in "Communications for Change" and background on climate change challenges facing the Eastern Caribbean. The training workshop will include a presentation of the findings of preliminary formative research. Participants will use the formative research to design the characters, settings and story lines for a serial drama. Further, training will be provided in how to run complementary radio magazine shows and support community action campaigns.
