TWO students from University of Fiji were selected to represent the country for the inaugural World Young Water Ambassadors Assembly meeting in Istanbul, Turkey, later this month.

Assistant lecturer at the university's School of Science and Technology Dhrishna Charan said they received an invitation from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to submit nominations for the meeting.

"After sending five names and resumes of science students between the ages of 16 to 20, two of our students, Jennis Naidu and Patricia Morgam have been selected," he said.

"The students will be leaving in the last week of the semester."

According to a statement from the ministry, the water ambassadors project is aimed at raising awareness among users about the effective utilisation and protection of water resources.
