Counting down to Bermuda's 2024 Youth Climate Summit!

Youth Climate Advisory Board (YCAB) Update

It is full steam ahead for the YCS participants! On February 26th the Youth Climate Advisory Board (YCAB) pitched their action projects a wider YCS participants in the Tradewinds Auditorium at BUEI.
The Conservation track proposed “Marine Protection and Outreach”, a project that tackles mangroves and sea grass conservation, as well as the culling of invasive Lionfish in our waters. This group has met with Bermuda National Trust, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, and went on an excursion to Burt Island where the Waterstart programme leaders introduced them to techniques used to support mangrove and sea grass restoration. Further discussions have begun with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources on Lionfish culling.
The YCAB members in Sustainability proposed an initiative aimed at reducing single use plastic with hot lunches served in local schools. The Sustainability team met with representatives from Beyond Plastic and Cafeteria Culture, an international initiative captured in the documentary “Microplastic Madness”.
The Climate Justice track proposed “Good Growing”, a community garden initiative that aims to improve awareness on the importance of food security in Bermuda. This group met with the Ministry of Public Works, Greenrock and Sinclair’s Seed Sowing to discuss their action plan. Members of Climate justice also toured the Food Forest Bermuda in Southampton and joined the excursion to Burt Island, where the Waterstart programme leaders introduced them to their food gardening methodology.
After a successful round of collaborative meetings with various local NGOs, each group will finalize their plans within the next 30 days, aiming to launch their initiatives shortly thereafter. For a fuller update check out this article HERE
