Welcome To CEPI Youth

Collaborative Environmental Planning Initiative (CEPI) strives to empower our youth to follow their dreams and build a future in Unama’ki.

CEPI Youth is a group of youth from all over Unamaki (Cape Breton) that care about Cape Breton Island, especially the Bras d’Or Lake. In a time when many are leaving the Island for employment, we want to show our youth how they can excel here with their talents, whatever they may be, without having to move away from home. We are a group of youth who want to make our Island thrive.

We are continuously working on projects for the youth of Unama’ki that relate to the environment, the climate crisis, and the economy. We hope to encourage and guide our youth to remain in Cape Breton. Please follow our social media pages for up-to-date event notices.

MEMBER OF THE MONTH

Tracy Marshall

Ever since I joined CEPI Youth, I have found a true love for the place I have called home for my entire life. I dreamed of staying in Cape Breton, but I thought the only way I could make a living for myself and my family, was to move away. Luckily, I know better now, and have found so many opportunities in my life here on the Island I will always call home thanks to CEPI Youth and what the group is becoming.
