Calling all young people passionate about our environment! Bermuda can lead the world by example – but we can’t do it without your help! Your ideas and contribution are vital to bringing meaningful change locally and internationally.
The Bermuda Underwater Exploration (BUEI) Institute is proud to announce the Island’s first ever Youth Climate Summit. This event is open to students ages 13-22 and educators.
The Summit takes place November 22nd – 27th (Monday – Saturday) and will allow students to hear from and directly speak with local and global experts, leaders, and activists in the fields of Environmental Conservation, Sustainability, and Climate Justice. Following the Summit, students will have the opportunity to launch their own initiatives, partnering with local NGOs on a year-long, action-based volunteer project managed by a peer-elected, Youth Climate Advisory Board.
The first four days of the Summit are virtual and will ensure participants have the same science, information, and insight as their peers. On days five and six, participants will be putting those tools to work onsite as they meet with local organizations, choose a pipeline of change to be a part, of and then collaborate with their peers to create an action plan to be carried out over the following 12-months.
