Faroe Islands fear dip in population

Government faces uphill challenge in trying to convince its younger generation to continue living on the remote island.

    The Faroe Islands are one of Europe's most remote territories.

    Only 48,000 people live on the islands in the northern part of the Atlantic Ocean.

    The biggest problem the government faces is how to convince its young people to stay.
