What are we fundraising for?
We are fundraising to support a forum for youth in Bougainville (North Solomon Islands), to be held in April this year. The forum will focus on developing the skills and knowledge needed for the youth to advocate for their communities on
environmental issues such as climate change and relocation.
Communities from the Carteret Islands (Bougainville) are currently being forced to relocate their community due to rising sea levels ruining food crops. Young people from this community will be attending the forum, and the production of
short films made by the youth will enable them to tell their stories to an international audience.
