The Fiji National University students used their open day to highlight the need to combat climate change

Secondary students, who turned up yesterday, were enlightended by First year BSC Fisheries student, Kelera Naliga, who said all Fijians must work hand in hand to combat climate change in Fiji.

“Our Prime Minister is the president of COP 23 and we must do what we can to help him. Climate Change is real for us and we must do something about it,” Ms Naliga said.

“I am glad the students came to us and asked about what we have displayed. We displayed the types of wall that can used to prevent soil erosion and also stop the water going inland.

“This is a good platform to educate students on what we can all do, especially when it comes to climate change.”

Second year forestry student, Litia Salavukivuinakelo, said the traditional culture of the iTaukei could be used to contribute to the sustainability of the forest.

“Forests are important to us and we must work together to ensure that the future generation of our country benefits from it too,” Ms Salavukivuinakelo said.

“We must educate everyone about the use of the forests and how we can protect it.”

Hundreds of students turned up for the last day of the FNU Open Day at the Nasinu campus.
