Commemorating the Public Service

The Ministry of Planning and Development took the opportunity at the Public Service Open House week to show the public why we are “Architects of the future”. Hosted by the Ministry of Public Administration, in observance of Public Service on June 23, 2016, the theme focused on Innovating for Excellence in Service Delivery and our Ministry accepted the challenge.

 Present at our booth were staff members from the Environmental Policy and Planning Division, Human Resources Department, Town and Country Planning Division, Central Statistical Office, The National Trust of Trinidad and Tobago and the Communications Department who advanced enforcement of our reputation as “Architects of the future”. 

On entering the booth our participants were met with activities, chances to learn about the Ministry and win great prizes. The list of undertakings included; live statistics on the spot courtesy the CSO, career advice and all things Human Resource, unfettered access to ask any and all town and country planning questions, a pro-environment selfie booth from the EPPD, and extraordinary details about our heritage from the National Trust, thus giving the public a holistic view of our Ministry and how we are the architects of the future.  

We also took this opportunity to launch a host of new activities all of which the public thoroughly enjoyed. Hung upon the wall was a blank canvas in which persons were asked to paint something that represented their ideal Trinidad and Tobago. Persons of every age, creed, race and status did so eagerly and with a love for our country.  With our in house DJ Ewan Headley our booth was quite the attraction and so were the games. The public took turns playing ‘Planning Pictionary’, ‘Planning Jeopardy’, Phrase Party, and Know your Country, all of these games were customized to educate and inform players about the Ministry of Planning and Development and our country.
