On the 17th November, 2015, the website for the Caribbean Research Empowerment Network was officially launched at The University of the West Indies Family Development Centre in St. Augustine, Trinidad and Tobago. The official website of the CREN (www.thecren.com) was announced to all present at the gathering which included the Honourable Ayanna Webster-Roy, Minister of State in the Office of the Prime Minister of Trinidad and Tobago, with responsibility for Child Development and Gender Affairs. Attendees had the opportunity to tour the website and register to become part of the Caribbean Research Empowerment Network.
Who are we?
The Caribbean Research Empowerment Network (CREN) is the first virtual community to offer Caribbean-specific content on child and family issues, and a forum for social and professional interaction on current educational and research developments. The CREN focuses on knowledge-generation, solution building and advocacy within the Caribbean context by mobilising educators, parents and other professionals in the fields of child and family development. The CREN is the first to provide a platform for educators and practitioners to articulate child and family issues which are central to the Caribbean.
This interactive teaching, learning, research, advocacy and networking website utilises technology to bridge the geographical barriers across the islands of the Caribbean region, creating a virtual space in which ideas, proposals and experiments emerge.

The CREN also offers longitudinal research potential as educators from across the Caribbean can execute action research plans on students within their own classrooms in collaboration with others from the region.
