We should plant more trees for the future generation of the North.

These are the words of a Bua lass vying for the 2014 Vodafone Friendly North Festival title.

The festival will be held later this month at Subrail Park in Labasa.

Lice Kurisavu of Namuavoivoi, in Bua with maternal links to Wailevu, Tunuloa in the province of Cakaudrove said being part of such a huge event in the North was great.

“I never dreamed that one day I will be part of the biggest festival in the North. With this festival I will be able to advocate on what I am passionate about” the 21-year old said.

“Being at this age we don’t really notice or take issues seriously, issues that affect us and the environment,” she said.
Ms Kurisavu will be advocating on the effects of deforestation.

“People in Labasa should be aware of the effects of deforestation and why awareness should be carried out to inform people about this issue.

People should be informed that they should practice planting trees; Labasa should work hand in hand to secure a better future for the next generation.”

The second year University of the South Pacific student is sponsored by Apco Coatings Limited.
