EFFORTS to develop an Eco-Library Cultural Centre on the grounds of South Taveuni Primary School are looking positive following a recent visit from some staff members and students of the University of Canberra, Australia.

The visitors provided expert advice on the formation of the eco-library which is intended to be designed to reflect the deep cultural connections the community of Southern Taveuni has to the land and the sea.

The eco-library initiative is supported by the Econesian Society, a Pacific Island organisation dedicated to conserving and managing the environment.

"This is a genuine community-based initiative that deserves to be widely supported," Honour Fiji Journey Ambassador and co-patron of the Econesian Society Dr Joeli Veitayaki said.

The team from Canberra is formulating recommendations for the next stage of the eco-library.
