SPREP Open Day to Celebrate 30th Anniversary


    To mark the 30th Anniversary of the signing of the SPREP Treaty, which established the Secretariat as a fully autonomous body in 1993, an Open Day was hosted at the SPREP Campus attended by 13 local schools and two tertiary institutions.

    More than a hundred students from schools across Samoa have made a collective commitment to preserve the Pacific environment – sustaining our livelihoods and natural heritage in harmony with our cultures.

    They made the commitment when they joined the celebration of the 30th birthday of the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP) at Vailima Samoa, on Thursday 15 June 2023.

    Speaking on behalf of all the students who attended, Ms Dolce So’oalo, of Fa’atuatua Christian College, delivered an emotional address about their role in the preservation of the environment.
