YOUNG people's participation in local, regional and international forums is important to address any sustainable development issue affecting Pacific small island developing states (SIDS), says United Nations Major Group for Children and Youth SIDS global focal point representative Kelvin Anthony.

Mr Anthony was a participant at the Pacific partnerships to strengthen gender, climate change response and sustainable development workshop, held in Nadi this week.

"The inter-linkages between responding to climate change, gender equality and sustainable development are the key issues that are discussed at this forum and it is great to be involved as a youth representative at this platform with leading Pacific women advocates," he said.

He was also the only male at the workshop and represented the UN Major Group Children and Youth and 350.org Pacific — a grassroots climate change advocacy and environmental organisation spread across 15 Pacific island countries.

"Whatever outcomes that I will receive from the forum will help in preparing me for the 3rd International Conference for Small Island Developing States in Apia, Samoa in August and September.
