World Environment Day (5th June) is the United Nations day for encouraging worldwide awareness and action to protect our environment.

This year’s theme is Biodiversity:

Earth is our home. It’s time for nature. It’s time for action:

Have a look at this initiative from EkoSkola Malta: Students’ Voices for World Environment Day 2020:

Eco-Code

During the past weeks, the EkoSkola Committee has been busy working on developing our own Eco-Code.

What is an Eco-Code?

An Eco-Code is a statement that represents the school’s commitment to sustainability, depending on the main objectives of the EkoSkola Action Plan. Our main targets this year were: Waste, Water, Energy and Trees.

This is the Eco-Code chosen by the committee:

Well done!!! It really reflects our work!!

Working safely from home!

Although schools are closed due to the Corona Virus situation, work did not stop! Our EkoSkola Committee continued to meet regularly once a week online.

The first activity the committee had to work on was Earth Hour. Our EkoSkola Committee had planned some special activities for this day. However, since we were already not attending school, these had to be changed. Instead, activities that could be done at home were promoted among the whole school community, with the main one being a family candle-lit dinner.

Another item in the action plan which the committtee started to work on is the Waste reduction video. This is an awareness-raising video to promote waste reduction. Once finished, it will be posted on the school facebook page and website, and shared with as much members of the school community as possible.
