Climate change advocate

THE Bible verse "with God, nothing is impossible" has been his source of strength for the past 24 years.

He is a schoolteacher by profession and someone who loves to explore and create new things his own way.

Jope Naucabalavu is known to be energetic, down to earth and passionate.

The 24-year-old hails from the island of Bau in Tailevu with maternal links in Deuba, Serua.

Mr Naucabalavu said in this year's Vodafone Fiji Hibiscus Festival, he would advocate on climate change affecting human lives because this was one of the few topics that he regarded to be something he was passionate about.

"We need to take action," he said.

"As a teacher by profession, we need to educate the young minds to be great problem solvers, smart thinkers and good enquirers."

Mr Naucabalavu said this was a great opportunity for him to reach out to the people and raise issues related to climate change. He is sponsored by Krish Amusement.
