Pivot: The Future Makers
Kamau, Musheer O.; Baxter, Sasha; Lee Bruce, Golda Kezia
Pivot is a movement of radical ideas for the Caribbean of the future. In 2020, the IDB and its partners (Caribbean Climate Smart-Accelerator (CCSA), Destination Experience (DE), and Singularity University) launched The Pivot Movement and asked the people of the Caribbean to think of big ideas to transform the region. A small group came together at The Pivot Event to design 9 moonshots for electric vehicles, digital transformation and tourism. Pivot: The Future Makers is a comic book produced by the Pivot partners and illustrated by Caribbean artists. In it, the 9 moonshots have been developed into fictional stories as a simple and powerful means of conveying possible, probable futures, to help us visualize the Caribbean in 2040.
