Rugby captains in Bougainville have become ambassadors for peace building, the referendum and the UN's sustainble development goals.

The ten captains, who led their teams during a rugby festival over the weekend in Arawa, have partnered with the Autonomous Bougainville Government and the UN Development Programme.

The UN's Kia-Henry Nema told Ben Robinson Drawbridge where the idea to partner with Bougainville athletes came from.
