Following our participation in the EkoSkola Summit last month, two members from our EkoSkola Committee participated in the 14h EkoSkola Parliament at The House of Representatives in Valletta on Wednesday 3rd April 2019. Through the EkoSkola Parliament students from different schools express their concerns about issues that in some way or another affect the quality of life.
Our school participated in the Eco-Schools 9th Young People’s Summit, which took place on Friday 15th March at Dun Manwel Attard Resource Centre, Wardija. The theme for this summit was We care about our future.
The three major issues that were discussed in this summit were:
Too much cars creating
a lot of traffic
Marine waste (with an
emphasis on plastic waste)
Lack of green open
spaces because of too much buildings.
The concerns raised and the suggestions proposed will be collated into a declaration that will be presented to the MPs at the 14th EkoSkola Parliament Session later this year.
Our school was represented by 5 members of our EkoSkola Committee and they participated in the Marine waste workshop.
Our school is going to participate in the Eco-Schools 9th Young People’s Summit, which will take place on Friday 15th March at Dun Manwel Attard Resource Centre, Wardija. The theme for this summit is We care about our future.
The topic chosen by our school’s committee is: Marine waste (with an emphasis on plastic waste). This is a great opportunity to voice our concern about this major issue!
The following is a video which explains this major environmental concern:
