Funds raised in the 2017 XL Catlin End-to-End will, in part, support the Greenrock which encourages and empowers individuals and companies to do their part in making Bermuda socially, economically and environmentally sustainable for future generations.
Greenrock‘s Bermuda Eco-Schools initiative provides an empowering experience for students as they can directly impact their school, home, and community environments through direct participatory involvement, countering feelings of alienation. Young Reporters teaches students journalistic skills and provides them with opportunities to investigate environmental issues which impact them and propose solutions. This process engages youth with the community and creates opportunities to be active members in community discourse and change.
Other ETE 2017 charities include Adult Education School, Age Concern, and Raleigh. In addition, participants will be able to vote for a special “people’s choice” recipient for E2E funding (choosing between Bermuda Society for the Blind, Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute, Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, and YouthNet).
