Kiribati Got Talent has begun consulting with councillors on the Tarawa Urban Council about using music to deliver the council's plans to communities.

One of the advisors to the NGO Ngaina Teiwaki said they were also working closely with the Phoenix Island Protected Area to promote their message on how a clean environment helps improve people's health.

Ms Teiwaki said they had also started promoting themselves to the outer islands in North Tarawa and are working on their plan for the year.
