More than 25 youths were engaged in the Youth Democracy Seminar aimed to equip youths in knowing the fundamen­tal principles of democracy and good governance.

The two-day seminar at the FASANOC Confer­ence Room earlier this week was organised by Dialogue Fiji under the Participative Democracy and Accountability Action (PDA).

PDA is funded by the European Union in partner­ship with the Citizens’ Constitutional Forum

Broderick Mervyn, an avid youth advocate and president of Ignite4Change said youths have an important role in democracy and good governance and should harness this role.

Mr Mervyn also acknowledged Dialogue Fiji and the European Union for this opportunity to be part of the seminar.

PDA’s objectives is to strengthen the role of civil society and communities in Fiji through the effec­tive and sustained participation of civil society and marginalised groups on local and national policymaking.

Monisha Naidu, a youth participant in attend­ance said platforms as such were important to raise issues for youths such as herself.

As a future leader, Ms Naidu said she has a duty to disseminate the information she has received to her community, family and friends as democracy affects all members of society.
