The Sigatoka Sand Dunes National Park hosted the "Heritage In Young Hands" program
The Sigatoka Sand Dunes National Park hosted the Park’s Heritage In Young Hands Program. The program has been resumed thanks to the great support from the Shangrila’s Yanuca Island, Fiji, the #KiwaInitiative and the National Trust of Fiji.
The program kickstarted with its first 3-day EcoCamp that was held from 9-11 May. 31 students from the Sigatoka region participated in the EcoCamp, which took them on an exploratory environmental education journey. They learned about heritage conservation, civic pride, stewardship, activism and volunteerism. The national park and the broader Sigatoka region, became an outdoor learning classroom.
The children enjoyed the program and took home with them many important eco-lessons to share with family and friends. This is the start of a five-year program "Heritage In Young Hands".
The next EcoCamp will take place during the Term 2 holidays.
