Bernard Kato Ewekia Taomia is a youth climate activist from Tuvalu, who made history as the first youth Tuvaluan delegate to participate in the United Nations Conference of the Parties (COP 26). Currently, Ewekia is the national leader of the non-governmental organisation Saving Tuvalu Global Campaign, focused on amplifying the voices and demands of the collective society and planning sustainable strategies to address his country's environmental and humanitarian crisis. Additionally, Ewekia is active in the Friday's for Future International movement, promoting inclusive and intersectional representation of activists from underrepresented and marginalised communities.

His work has been recognised by international organizations and media, such as The Guardian, Greenpeace, the BBC, or UNICEF - whom he, for example, represented at a press conference during COP26. His long-lasting mission lies in raising awareness about the consequences that human indifference has brought worldwide, and the importance of creating sustainable systems that guarantee a future for life on our planet.
