A GROUP of young people took part in WWF South Pacific's three-day International Eco-Internship Program (EIP) last week, converging to discuss environmental issues in the Pacific, among other relevant topics.

The 24 participants took part in the intensive and interactive campaign to learn about nature photography, documentary making, green journalism and solid waste management.

"The International Eco-Internship Program (EIP) is a campaign developed by the WWF Network to develop a sense of civic responsibility amongst its participants," a WWF South Pacific statement stated.

The workshop co-ordinator, Hamza Malik, said when piloted in Pakistan, the program proved successful with about 10,000 students having graduated from it.

"The program is beneficial for conservation work as it inculcates civic responsibility among the youth of Fiji," Mr Malik said in the statement.
