Free environment documentaries for the young at BUEI

A marine science museum will screen a series of free documentaries on environmental problems to youngsters from this weekend.

The Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute will launch Youth Climate Cinema on Saturday.

The stories about climate change and environmental justice will be shown every weekend for the rest of the month.

A spokeswoman for BUEI said: “Being able to show a variety of films means there should be something interesting for everyone.

“We want young people to know that they don’t have to be an expert in everything to do something that matters.

“If they find what they’re passionate about and focus on that area then, when we come together, we can create a fantastic mosaic of climate change initiatives.”

The events will be a curtain-raiser for the island’s first Youth Climate Summit in November, which will teach young people about the science of climate change, the potential impacts and what can be done to stop it.

The series will feature films in the categories of “Fast Fashion”, “The Ocean Around Us”, “Wildlife Warriors” and “Climate Justice”.

Each film will be about an hour long and will be screened in BUEI’s Tradewinds Auditorium.

Films will be shown between noon and 3pm every Saturday, with another film at 3pm every Sunday.

Each screening will have 50 seats available, with priority access being given to those aged between 13 and 22 and their guests.

Youth Climate Cinema comes after last Saturday’s airing of Youth Unstoppable, a documentary on the rise of the youth climate movement from the perspective of young people on the Government’s CITV channel.

The screening calendar can be found here.
