The Ashley Lashley Foundation in partnership with UNICEF Eastern Caribbean Area Office, Clara Lionel Foundation and Open Society Foundation, held a Global Youth Network Summit and evolved around climate change women’s and children’s mental health. 


This was held on Wednesday, September 28th at 9:00 am, virtually.


The summit aims to bring together experts and youths from across the globe under three thematic sessions, namely: Strengthening Climate action-Women and Girls leading the response, Women’s and Children’s Mental Health in the Climate Crisis and inclusive action, the role of Men, and the Inclusion of Vulnerable Groups. 


To date, these summits have seen members of the international community, businesses and civil society come together, learn and generate solutions towards these varying themes. 


The Ashley Lashley Foundation’s primary focus is therefore to bring about a greater sense of awareness of some of the world’s major social, environmental and health issues, such as the health impacts of climate change, particularly in Small Island Developing States (SIDS).


Ashley Lashley, is a Barbadian UNICEF Youth Advocate. VON Radio took part in the summit.
