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 Institute (BUEI) is the proud founder and host of Bermuda’s Youth Climate Summit. This event is open to students ages 13-22 and educators.
The Summit is a weeklong (Monday-Saturday), annual event that takes place in November. Participants get 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 the foundation of the week, ensuring attendees have the same information as their peers, including the latest science and insight. On days five and six, participants 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.
