The workshop targeted personnels from the judiciary, NGO’s, youth officers, social welfare, faith groups and students from the University of the South Pacific.

The Assistant Lecturer & Coordinator, Undergraduate Diploma in Leadership, Governance, and Human Rights, Natasha Khan said the workshop was aimed at creating awareness on the importance of Leadership, Good Governance and how they are linked.

An invitation had been sent out to people in both private and public sector, NGO’s, faith groups as well as students at the University of the South Pacific.

I believe that leadership is an important topic that should be discussed not only in schools but in the churches, communities and household.

Keith Rasova, a volunteer from Scripture Union Fiji was one of the participants at this workshop which was an overwhelming experience for him and he strongly encourages more youths to be actively involved to gain awareness and also learn about the ethics of leadership and human rights.

It is through these workshops that I am able to learn and gain more knowledge and impart the knowledge learnt to members of my community, colleagues, and family.

Participant, Broderick Mervyn said young people should grab the opportunity and be part of these workshops.

These workshops will allow young people to gain knowledge, interact with people from various backgrounds and make a difference in their society.

I strongly urge young people to take the initiative and become an active agent of change.

The workshop was conducted by USP’s School of Government, Development and International Affairs.
