Cayman’s First Climate Fair: Inspiring Awareness and Action Among Youth June 15

14th May 2024 George Town, Cayman Islands – The National Trust for the Cayman Islands proudly

integrating both science and art to effectively convey the urgency of the climate crisis.

“We’re thrilled to introduce Cayman’s first-ever Climate Fair and competition,” said Bella Rooney,
Climate Education Officer at the National Trust for the Cayman Islands. “This event offers a unique

Participants will not only have the chance to expand their knowledge but also compete for exciting
prizes as a recognition of their efforts.

“We encourage members of the public to join us at the Climate Fair,” added Bella. “It’s a fantastic
opportunity to engage with our youth, gain insight into their perspectives on climate change, and
witness firsthand the passion and dedication they bring to addressing this global challenge.”

The Fair is scheduled to take place on Saturday, June 15th, from 10 am to 4 pm at the Prospect
