The illegal president may think he's a role model leading a walk to promote climate change but he and the regime will find it won't be such a walk in the park to get the region to soften its stance.
Epeli Nailatikau made a 30 kilometre walk through Suva this morning daring five government departments and five NGOs to 'take action to improve the enviroment' saying "I can take action, I will take action - will you?"
But Nailatikau and his cohorts are facing their own challenge to take action and it remains to be seen if it can talk the talk and walk the walk.
The Pacific Forum's Ministerial Action Group has made it clear it will be tracking the regime's assurances of open and fair access to elections and its new Constitution.
There have been some concern the MCG has in effect endorsed the regime by its visit and it's comment it is encouraged by what it has seen.
The Australian Foreign Minister Bob Carr has reiterated again yesterday, though, that he was only 'moderately encouraged' and it is too early to consider lifting sanctions.
Feedback from political parties and Fiji's democracy movement show most endorse the MCG's findings and are happy the group did not take regime's word at face value.
In fact, the national president of the Australian based Fiji Democracy and Freedom Movement Suliasi Daunitutu believes the MCG's expectations clearly puts the regime on the spot.
"We believe the MCG has in effect laid down a Road Map to the illegal Military Junta on what they need to do before they can expect the support and corporation of the Pacific Islands Forum.
"We believe the short term implications for the illegal Military Junta is to be seen trying to comply with the MCG’s Road Map, but they’ll find it very difficult because to do so would be giving power back to the people, whom they’ve successfully managed to overwhelm at this current time.
"The long term implications is that once they realise they cannot trust the Fijian people with this freedom, which is their human right, they will try to revert to enforcing their various draconian laws and restrictions upon the people of Fiji, but we’re hopeful the people will be empowered by recent events and find the courage to stand up demanding their right from the illegal Military Junta."
