Niu Pawa Festival
September 21, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
350 Fiji, in conjunction with Oxfam in the Pacific, the Pacific Islands Climate Action Network and Alliance for Future Generations, is hosting the Niu Pawa Festival, bringing families together with a focus on creating awareness about climate breakdown, its impacts and how to get involved in climate activism.
Niu,the Fijian word for coconut, is symbolic of the tree of life, our culture and the important role that it plays in informing and directing climate action. It plays on the English word “new”, implying that we need to adjust our perspective and practice to be innovative and dynamic in our approaches.
Pawa, means strength and power – this movement is about giving power back to the people and generating mass mobilisation.
