Climate workshop

Wednesday, February 26, 2014

YOUTHS from around Suva spent last week improving their knowledge of climate change issues in the Pacific as individuals as well as the communal roles they can play to minimise these impacts.

The four-day training exercise, dubbed the Climate Warrior Training, was co-ordinated by 350 Pacific and hosted at the Centre for Appropriate Technology and Development at Nadave in Tailevu.

"Young people from in and around Suva plus two representatives from 350 Nauru took advantage of this opportunity to enhance their leadership skills, increase their knowledge of climate change impacts in the Pacific and identify strategies to more effectively carry out the work of 350.org in minimising the impacts of climate change," said a statement from the organisation.

"The Climate Warrior Trainings are being held across the Pacific to empower more young Pacific Islanders to take ownership of their future by standing in solidarity to show countries responsible for climate change that they are prepared to do what they need to defend their island homes."

USP journalism student Shivneel Narayan said he would use his new-found knowledge about the climate battle to help empower more people.
