PM to receive UN’s highest environmental honour

The United Nations in partnership with the government have brought together a vast selection of partners from all across the country to set-up two full days of community activities tomorrow and on Saturday at Prince Charles Park.

The Western division was specifically targeted for this first of its kind initiative due to the enormous socio-economic impact COVID-19 has had on thousands of Fijians living in the area, following the shut down of the tourism industry.

In a historical moment for Fiji and the Pacific, Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama will be presented with the prestigious Champion of the Earth Award - the UN’s highest environmental honour.

UN Resident Coordinator, Sanaka Samarasinha says the UN75 Community days will be the first time they have undertaken such a massive, joint initiative with the Fijian Government and their partners across Civil Society, the Private Sector and Diplomatic Corps.

He says they wanted to round off the UN’s 75th anniversary with something that would educate, assist and improve the lives of people in a meaningful way – but they also wanted to bring a smile to their faces and lift morale a little, after an exceptionally difficult year.
