On April 15th, YCS participants conducted a beach cleanup on Nonsuch Island, home to many of the Island’s rarest and most endangered plants, animals, and bird species. During their visit, students explored the conservation practices of the reserve used to protect the endemic wildlife of Bermuda.
Participants later attended a Youth Energy Roundtable hosted at The Bermuda Business Development Agency on April 19th where they discussed the future of energy in Bermuda.
Later in the month, students attended a lunch and learn session at AXA XL (Transformational Founding Partners of the Youth Climate Summit initiative) to learn about the role of (re)insurance in the climate change debate.
Closing out the month on April 29th, YCS participants visited Burt Island to observe firsthand the self-sustaining outdoor eco-classroom that has been developed by Waterstart, focused on promoting environmental awareness and personal growth through hands-on educational opportunities in natural environments.
