Welcome to our website. From the time of its genesis in the early 1990s, CYEN has been mobilizing young people from across the wider Caribbean to participate in and advocate on environment and sustainable development critical to the region. The Network has successfully coordinated over twenty regional and international events as well as numerous national events. These have all been focused on engaging and building the capacity of the region’s youth to proactively respond to the ever-mounting environmental challenges. 

 

We hope that you can join us in our efforts to ensure that degradation of the Caribbean’s environment is kept to a minimum and that the livelihoods of our people, which are so dependent on our natural resources, can be sustained. Management of the environment is not the responsibility of a few but it is the duty of us all and undoubtedly, it is even more vital that young citizens play their part. An ancient American proverb says, "Treat the Earth well: it was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children.  We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors; we borrow it from our Children." 

 

It is our hope that you will continue to visit this website, use our resources, provide us with your feedback (suggestions and comments) as to how we can improve and better meet your needs. Remember, you too can become part of the largest and most active youth environment and sustainable development movement in the Caribbean by joining the CYEN.

                                           

Thank you for visiting.
