MEMBERS of the Macuata Provincial Youth Council have been urged to think outside the box and invest in sustainable projects.
The comment was made by the National Youth Council Northern president TJ Loloma at the provincial youth council AGM in Labasa yesterday.
Mr Loloma said youths in the province could help the government with sustainable self-help and commercial projects.
"Think big, invest and make your project sustainable," he said.
"We should be the ones making the first move instead of relying on the government and other donor agencies all the time.
"Make use of available resources for the purpose of developing something bigger and beneficial for everyone."
Mr Loloma said youths were the leaders of tomorrow and it was only proper for them to set their minds on positive initiatives with good planning.
"In order to develop Macuata and Vanua Levu as whole, we need to act now and be bold so we can achieve our targets.
"We often dream of big projects and we can achieve this if we are not idle.
"Let's work together and move our country forward."
