Island Innovation announced that Bermuda’s Noelle Young has been selected for the 2024 Caribbean Climate Justice Leaders Academy.

A spokesperson said, “Noelle will be part of a cohort of 50 young leaders from across the Caribbean. Following a strict application process that reviewed hundreds of applicants, the cohort features participants from every CARICOM nation, in addition to other territories.

“The program, funded by the Open Society Foundations [OSF], is the world’s largest private funder of independent groups working for justice, democratic governance, and human rights.

“The 5-month course has just begun. The program is aimed at building participants’ knowledge of international policies, environmental sustainability, climate resilience, and how they impact Caribbean communities.

Reflecting on her selection, Noelle Young said, “Being chosen for this prestigious program is an incredible honor. I am excited to bring back valuable insights and actionable strategies to help Bermuda and its people. I am trying my best to make long lasting impactful change within my lifetime for the benefit of future generations.”

Island Innovation CEO James Ellsmoor commented, “At the grassroots level, young people are not just advocating for their communities but are actively identifying and implementing practical, sustainable solutions for the region. We need this force for change.

The spokesperson said, “At Island Innovation, we are committed to empowering young leaders through initiatives like the Caribbean Climate Justice Leaders Academy [CCJLA]. The Island Innovation team will continue to empower these young professionals with knowledge, connections, and an additional platform amplifying their efforts for a more equitable and sustainable Caribbean. I look forward to seeing the 2024 cohort in action through the upcoming months.
