Counting down to Bermuda's 2024 Youth Climate Summit!

About The Summit

Welcome to the Bermuda Youth Climate Summit (YCS), a transformative weeklong event uniting over 150 students aged 13-22 from schools across Bermuda. Together, we lay the groundwork for a year of youth-led activities focused on local climate mitigation in Conservation, Sustainability, and Climate Justice. 
YCS engages young people on global climate issues, empowering them to become agents of change in their communities. With a commitment to inclusivity, 70% of our participants represent public schools, thanks to the Ministry of Education's valuable support. 
The Summit spans six days in November.  The first five days (3 virtual/2 onsite) are dedicated to education and engagement and held during school hours. On the final day, all participants, including YCS alumni and our visiting youth activists, join for a collective conservation activity
In 2023, the Youth Climate Summit was honoured to receive the 'Michael Darling Heritage Education Award' from The Bermuda National Trust, their pinnacle award for Environmental Education. BUEI is the first non-school awardee since its inception in 1990. This initiative was also recognized with two 'Best of Bermuda'awards from the Bermudian Magazine.  The first was in the category of Best Booster for the Environment, an accolade we are delighted to share with the Bermuda Zoological Society's Micro Forest Project.  The second, also from the Bermudian Magazine, was for Best Community Charity Project. These awards are a testament to the Summit’s impact, the power of collaboration among our dedicated peer and partner organizations, and the support of passionate volunteers and participant mentors. 
Join us at the Bermuda Youth Climate Summit to address environmental challenges, learn from global experts, and create actionable plans for a sustainable future.  
Together, we can make a meaningful impact on our environment, locally and globally! 

“You matter, what you do matters, and collectively – it makes a difference”
