Vanuatu youth to present media showcase


Port Vila high school students will present their own climate change TV, Radio and other Media Productions to key decision makers in Vanuatu at a Showcase event on Friday 8 November. 


High school students from Central School and Lycee College will share their stories about climate change and its impacts on their environment and their future. These Vanuatu youths will use the Showcase event in Port Vila to highlight the short films, radio programs and other media productions they have produced.

Over the last few months students have been working alongside climate change and media mentors to create their media projects to raise awareness about climate change issues in their community.
