Youths who are part of the UK-based global charity ClimateScience group today shared their ideas with Attorney General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum on how best subjects can be incorporated into the national education syllabus to ensure Fijians including children are aware of climate change.

This is according to a statement by the Fijian government.

The Attorney-General encouraged the youth to plan and research into how they can design innovative projects to better address climate change for the future generation.

He also briefed the youth on Fiji’s participation at COP26 that will commence later this week in Glasgow, Scotland and the various issues that will be discussed at the high-level meeting.

Sayed-Khaiyum highlighted key points in the Climate Change Act 2021 that will create enormous economic opportunities for Fijian landowners.
