Snap a selfie

Tevita Vuibau

SHOW your support with selfies — that's the call from the UNFPA which is asking youths to get involved and drive specific youth goals in the post-2015 development agenda with a petition of selfies.

The call came during the National Youth and Sports Conference in Suva which coincided with the UNFPA Pacific Sub-Regional Office campaign that seeks to collect millions of selfies globally.

These will then be used to communicate to world leaders who will converge in New York for the UN General Assembly in September (2014) that young people are asking for and deserve a specific youth (development) goal.

"Selfies are fun to do and so the idea is that you take a selfie and send it to us, the UNFPA," UNFPA Pacific Sub-Regional Office director and representative Dr Laurent Zessler said.

"Please snap a selfie and send it so that the faces of the Pacific, the face of the Fijians are in these processes... snap and send us a selfie, express yourself," Dr Zessler told participants at the National Youth and Sports Conference.
