On the occasion of World Environment Day, The Ashley Lashley Foundation is proud to release We are HEY! as part of the HEY Campaign. The 6-minute video delivers a powerful message of hope and the vision of a re-imagined future shared by 19 young people from the Caribbean, Europe, Asia and Africa.

“With the Covid-19 pandemic, we have never been this aware of the need to protect both our health and the Planet!”, said Ashley Lashley, Miss World Barbados 2018, and a former medical student.

“Through We are HEY!, we wanted to illustrate what we mean by being a healthy and environmentally friendly youth, and express our wishes and dreams for a better future”, she added.

The HEY Campaign, a youth-led campaign on Climate Change and Health, was launched in April 2020. Initiated from Barbados, it aims to bring youth and children from around the world together, in their diversity, to advocate for shared values promoting life and dignity, rather than economic growth alone.

The We Are HEY! video is available on YouTube on the channel of The Ashley Lashley Foundation, with English, French and Spanish sub-titles.

Happy World Environment Day!
