Listen to Ra'eed just below or on YouTube, Apple Podcasts, Spotify or Google Podcasts.


🎤 “Tokenism was definitely a large challenge. For all policies, we ensure that the most vulnerable and young people are not only consulted, but part of the development, implementation and monitoring process”.

🇫🇯 Ra’eed Ali is known as “The Plastics Guy” in Fiji for his impact with Precious Plastic Fiji, the social enterprise he co-founded. He’s also a youth advocate with the Alliance for Future Generations, a climate activist with 350.org Fiji and was the proud Fiji youth representative for the COP24 and COY14 in Poland!


💪 We discuss how he got into all these international, regional and national networks and how he’s leveraging on them to engage the youth in Fiji and make a difference. Ra’eed shares why his life is all about environmental protection and social justice and all the things that made him connect to his own power of action.
