A youth-led environmental initiative has appointed a new leader, the Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute announced this morning.

Rosemarie McMahon has become the consulting director of the Youth Climate Initiative, organised by the BUEI, and will be responsible for developing the campaign.

Karla Lacey, the chief executive officer of BUEI, said: “We are delighted to have Dr McMahon on board.

“She brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the Youth Climate Initiative that will serve participants well as they take action on the goals they set during the summit.”

Dr McMahon, originally from Ireland, has built a career in environmental leadership and communication despite the complexities and challenges common in the sector.

She received a master's degree in environmental management from the Nicholas School of Environment at Duke University in the US.

Dr McMahon also earned a PhD from ETH Zurich, a Swiss university, for her research in science communication and visualisation.

Much of her research looked at atmospheric and climate science, putting her knowledge of the topic on a par with that of current scientific research.

Dr McMahon has also written and illustrated two children’s books that touch on melting glaciers and the spread of a virus.

The Youth Climate Summit, held in November, aimed to encourage youth-led plans based around sustainability, conservation and climate justice.
