Under 40s In Philanthropy & KBB Clean Up Event

March 2, 2021 | 1 Comment

The Under 40s in Philanthropy Group has partnered with Keep Bermuda Beautiful [KBB] to host a community clean up on Turtle Bay Beach, Cooper’s Island on Saturday, March 27 from 10am – 12pm.

A spokesperson said, “The purpose of the community cleanup in the middle of a pandemic is to remind our community it has a duty to keep Bermuda beautiful and continue to care for our island.”

Samantha Nearon, Under 40s Chair stated, “Bermuda is our home, but we share it with each other and the wildlife that inhabits our island and the surrounding waters. Our partnership with KBB on this beach cleanup is about recognising this wider ecosystem and creating a socially distanced opportunity for individuals in Bermuda to contribute.”

The Under 40s’ mission is to “provide opportunities for Under 40s in Bermuda to get involved and volunteer with charities in the nonprofit sector.”

Ms Nearon  said, “We’ve seen over the last couple of years, a significant opportunity for Under 40s to make a positive impact in our community and to learn from the dedicated leaders in the nonprofit sector. Partnering with KBB builds the relationships between the Under 40s and the third sector. We strive to make a positive contribution through volunteer opportunities as our partnerships grow.”

“With the help of KBB, we hope to contribute to the KBB mission ‘to engage individuals to take greater responsibility in reducing waste and eliminating litter through action and education’. We hope our partnership, through this event, allows for KBB to raise awareness about the importance of keeping Bermuda beautiful and inspire the next generation to support their work in the community.

    Interesting the choice of name. Back in the late 70s and early 80s there was another Under 40s group, a social justice group that focused on inequality in the community. Initially bipartisan but as time went on they lost Black participation due to the failure of addressing inequality by race, and eventually were aligned with the UBP. This group began the annual Good Friday kite contest at Horseshoe Bay, which included music, kite flying and all sorts of games/activities for young people.
