As Director of World Tourism of Peace and Sustainable Development and President of
Island Nations Climate and Oceans Program as well, LeLaulu has a personal and professional
appreciation of Pyle's work. He went on to say, "On an individual level Barbara used her
considerable influence to ensure all parts of the 'development continuum' were well
covered by CNN and the world media. CMEx is particularly thankful for her efforts in the
launching of the Caribbean Media Exchange on Sustainable Tourism which has become the
premier platform for using tourism to improve the health, culture, environment and wealth of
destinations in a climate friendly fashion."
At the CMEx event, other awards conferred were Journalism Excellence Awards to Zodet
Negrón of the Puerto Rico Daily Sun and Colin Moore of the Caribbean-American Weekly
and the Emerging Journalist Award to Carmy Joseph of Helen Television.
