Teenager to Empower Citizens for a Pollution Free Environment
Eighteen-year-old Barbra Selina Dyer will give her best shot to empower the people of the North to work together for a pollution free environment. Sponsored by the Lions Club of Labasa, her advocacy message during the 2019 Festival of the Friendly North is: Bigger voices, Better Lives.
“My approach is person centered, empowering and rights focused,” Miss Dyer said.
“I believe in being fair, valuing diversity and involving people who are extremely important because these are some of our values.
“Therefore, I will be using the platform to empower the people of the North to work hand in hand on raising their voices on the importance of having a much cleaner environment,” she said. Miss Dyer believes that an unclean environment leads to the bad condition of a society that contributes to the spread of diseases. She urges the people of the North to be more responsible consumers and put their rubbish in its right place – in the rubbish bin.
