Young people to converge for Youth Conference today
More than 500 young people from the four divisions in Fiji including Rotuma would be converging in Suva for a three day National Youth and Sports Conference as part of Youth Day celebrations.
The Ministry of Youth and Sports will be hosting the conference at the Vodafone Arena which starts tomorrow with the theme ‘Strengthening Youth in Decision Making Processes’.
Ministry permanent secretary Josefa Sania said the three day conference will be packed with powerful sessions from selected speakers on issues aimed at influencing youth to make informed choices in life, including issues relating to health, environment, sports, human rights, leadership and ethics.
He said the ministry has decided that instead of the usual youth day celebrations, a conference would be organized with the sole purpose of empowering young people.
Sania added this will culminate in an awards night on June 26, the last day of the conference.
The Minister for Youth and Sports Viliame Naupoto will officially open the National Youth and Sports Conference.
