The NextGen Board’s main objective is to create, inspire, and lead a movement for social, environmental, and economic change in line with the IDB's Country Strategy and Trinidad and Tobago’s developmental goals. Twenty of the country’s most inspiring, exciting, and revolutionary thinkers from various sectors -- including business and economy, arts and culture, technology, and conservation and environmentalism -- will use their mass appeal and media savvy to become ideal IDB ambassadors. The NextGen Board is a "do" tank, not a think tank, dedicated to partnering with Government and wider society to help achieve the IDB's country strategy goals for Trinidad and Tobago.

The NextGen board will discuss and work on issues such as:

  • Public sector development
  • Private sector efficiency
  • Climate change
  • Gender dynamics
  • Infrastructure
  • Technology
  • Entrepreneurship
