YOUTH representatives from Melanesia and Polynesia attending a roundtable meeting, organised by the Pacific Islands Association of Non-Government Organisation, are being encouraged to specify objectives they want beyond 2015, at the expiration of the Millennium Development Goals.

About 12 youth representatives are part of the Rethinking Development and Reshaping the Pacific we want —beyond 2015 meeting in Nadi.

PIANGO executive director Emele Duituturaga said with the United Nations engaged in a process of deciding post-2015 goals for younger people, they were supporting youths to come forward as they make up the majority of the population in the Pacific.

Ms Duituturaga said youth unemployment and development were among the major challenges.
