Pasifika Rising is the online information sharing, resources and communication platform of the Raising Pacific Voices (RPV) program, funded by the European Union, aimed at sustainably strengthening civil society groups in the region to credibly and successfully take their own issues to national, regional and international stages.
Pasifika Rising’s tagline, Pacific perspectives for a global future, signals the recognition that we are #LargeOceanStates of the Pacific, proud of our common heritage and determined to protect and preserve our region for future generations – and that our voices matter in the global discourse on issues affecting us. Pasifika Rising is a celebration of our history, sharing our present concerns and an affirmation of our dreams for the future.
