The Caribbean Youth Environment Network (CYEN) is conducting a Pre-ClimaKon Survey as part of our Caribbean Youth for Climate Action Convention entitled “CLIMAKON.”

ClimaKon will provide the opportunity for youth within the Caribbean to gather under the banner of “Climate Action”. This event also seeks to get youth across the Caribbean to speak and give their views more freely on Climate Change and its related issues.

The purpose of this survey is to gain the knowledge of Barbadian youth on Climate Change and its related areas. All collected information will be used to inform and steer discussions at the upcoming CLIMAKON Youth Convention. By completing this survey, you will be given an opportunity to win a grand prize after the survey period has closed.

*This Survey is only open to Residents, Students (minimum of 1 year in the country) and Citizens of Barbados (Ages 15 – 30)
