They may not be present at the Climate Change Summit in New York, but these students from Suva will surely get their message out worldwide.

Year 11 students from International School Suva are painting Suva’s Stinson Parade bridge to remind the world the dangers posed by climate change and the unwillingness of people to do nothing about them.

Breea Kaba and Sara Du are the brains behind the project.

Breea said the project was planned and got underway once the Fiji Roads Authority gave the all clear.

“We will paint both sides of the bridge so the cars and the public can see our messages,” she said.

“We are painting the ocean, the marine life and how pollution and climate change is affecting the environment.”

The students sat on the bridge on Friday afternoon painting their mural. They did not mind the confused gazes from passersby.

They believe this is for a better world.

Sara said they will go live on social media on September 25 in a worldwide event where artists across the world will share videos to highlight their messages.

She said they were thankful to FRA for approving the project and to Vinod Patel for supplying the paint.
