No matter who we are and no matter where we come from we are showing that by working together as one nation, one people we are fully committed to confronting the biggest challenge we have ever faced as Fijians that is climate change. This was said by Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama at the closing of the National Climate Change Week at Sukuna Park in Suva, today.
Bainimarama says people took part in various Climate Change Week events because they all know they are part of something much greater that is the crusade to save the nation and to save the planet. He says the same commitment must be shared by the whole world because all are vulnerable and all need to act. Bainimarama says everyone needs to be involved in the fight against climate change.
The Prime Minister says one might ask what has Fiji got to teach the world about climate change and the answer is that Fijians know the value of teamwork. He says teamwork has taken us to sporting greatness and it is taking us to greatness as a nation.
Bainimarama says his aim is to keep the global climate negotiations on track and to get everyone to fully implement the Paris Agreement and limit the global temperature to 1.5 degrees above that of the industrial age. Meanwhile, primary school student Timoci Naulusala of Naivicula District School, today won the National Oratory Contest for COP23 as part of Climate Change Week and he will represent Fiji in Bonn, Germany.
