In a bid to support the Government’s initiatives on climate change, the University of Fiji is holding COP23 seminars in their Saweni campus in Lautoka.

This is part of their role to create public awareness on climate change.

They have COP23 seminars every month.

University of Fiji Vice Chancellor Professor Prem Misir said they have held four COP23 seminars so far.

“COP 23 is important for us because of the Fijian Government’s role through its Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama as the chairman of the COP23 conference in Bonn, Germany, in November.

“It is important and a big boost for Fiji because Mr Bainimarama will be presiding over more than 150 countries,” Prof Misir said.

While the university was not tasked to hold such seminars, Professor Misir said the university felt it was their role to take charge in creating awareness about climate change, and its significance to Fiji and the other Pacific island nations.
