The Caribbean Media Exchange, Inc. (CMEx) was founded in 2001 to help improve the quality of media coverage of sustainable tourism in the Caribbean; increase the media’s participation in the design of sustainable tourism policies, and highlight the necessity of tourism to the economies of small island states.

We seek to partner with philanthropists, academic institutions, and socially responsible businesses to create sustainable solutions for tourism, equity, environmental sustainability, and economic growth in the Caribbean Region. We are a non-endowed organization and rely on the annual support of generous individuals, foundations and corporations. Please join us in our effort.

We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization (Tax ID/EIN: 26-4127301) so donations are tax deductible for U.S. citizens who itemize their deductions. Please consider making a financial contribution to CMEx today.
