A young Fijian climate advocate has called on world leaders to act against climate change.
14-year-old Timoci Naulusala of Naivicula in Tailevu has yet again made Fiji proud after delivering an expressive speech at the UN Youth Climate Summit in New York.
While highlighting the devastating impacts of climate change in Fiji and the Pacific, Naulusala says we are already seeing and living the consequences of the warming planet.
“Climate Change affects us all. We need everyone to understand that we must work as a team before it’s too late. Speak up this is our time.”
The young advocate co-chaired the Inter-Generational Town Hall sessions at the UN Youth Climate Summit in New York, alongside Deputy Secretary-General of the United Nations Amina Jane Mohammed, Marshall Islands President, Hilda Heine, and a few other world leaders.
