CPDC is the second building after the Plaza, it is a cream building with a gravel driveway. There is also a sign out front that says CPDC.
The organisation is headed by a National Coordinator who is assisted by 3 Assistant National Coordinators.
The local membership is made up of individual members as well as organisational members.
There are several events carried out by the organisation during a year including a planning retreat at the end of the year. Most of the other events are arranged around the recognised Environmental days with June being celebrated as Environmental month.

"A future that is Pollution Free- Join Hands to Protect Our Caribbean Sea”.
In celebration of the entry into force of the Protocol concerning pollution from Land-Based Sources and Activities (LBS), UNEP's Caribbean Environment Programme (CEP) has officially launched the Wider Caribbean LBS Protocol Collage* Competition. The competition, which is locally facilitated by the Environmental Protection Department (EPD) in collaboration with the Caribbean Youth Environment Network (CYEN)- Barbados Chapter, will be launched in Barbados on Friday 1st April, 2011 at 2:00pm at the Ministry of Environment, Water Resource Management and Drainage, S.P. Musson Building, Hincks Street, St. Michael.
Under the above captioned theme, UNEP's CEP hopes to showcase the views of 12-18 year olds on our beautiful Caribbean Sea and how they can protect its fragile, vulnerable coastal and marine ecosystems from land-based sources of pollution. I take this opportunity to invite all CYEN members and affiliates to the Launch.
More information on the Competition:
Interested applicants must be between the ages of 12-18 years old and must enter through their school/class, environmental club, faith-based group and/or other community or youth organization. The competition ends June 30th 2011. Local competition winners will then be eligible to represent Barbados in the Regional Competition to vie for cash prizes of US$1000.00 (First Prize), US$750.00 (Second Prize) or US$500.00 (Third Prize). The winning collage for the region will be converted into a portable banner and used in UNEP's promotional campaigns on the LBS Protocol and more. National winners will also be used in the promotion of pollution prevention activities in the Wider Caribbean region. For more information, contact email email@example.com o
* "collage” refers to a technique of composing a work of art by pasting on a single surface various materials not normally associated with one another, such as magazine clippings, parts of photographs, packaging, paintings, solid objects, etc.
