CHILDREN were part of the National Climate Change Summit for the first time on Thursday.
Through the Live and Learn Environmental Education and the European Union, the children from 10 primary schools from the Nadi district were brought in to participate in dialogue sessions with participants at the week-long event.
According to the Live and Learn Environmental Education, the children showcased actions they carried out in their communities in their quest to mitigate climate change.
According to the EU-funded program, children were for a variety of reasons particularly vulnerable to the impact of climate change.
It said they were often the first to pay the price for unsustainable development.
