Action Planet

posted on February 12, 2018

Action Planet is a nationwide project that unites people from all walks of life to find simple and effective ways to improve our environment, health and wellbeing. By honestly looking at how our daily lifestyle choices are impacting our environment we are able to find simple yet effective solutions. Action Planet brings together schools, outreach organisations, higher education institutes, NGOs, organisations, artists and government ministries in one project. Through research, media projects, focus groups, and speaker events we are finding creative ways of working together to find solutions to issues impacting Malta’s sustainability. The intention is to empower people with simple tools that can help to make lasting change.. Our student led exhibition, from February 17th – March 18th 2018, showcases art installations, photographs and media projects created by students from MCAST, the University of Malta, schools, Inspire and the Malta Sound Women’s network.

Malta officially joins the international campaign through the YRE (Young Reporters for the Environment) programme run by Nature Trust – FEE Malta. Present for the ceremony was Mr Vincent Attard – Nature Trust-FEE Malta Executive President and also Hon. Jose Herrera – Minister for the Environment, Sustainable Development and Climate Change who distributed a number of grants to the selected schools in order to complete their campaigns. Workshop sessions about marine litter, the delicate sand dune ecosystems and the alignment of the campaign to the United Nations- SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) were held on the sandy beach. The Litter Less Campaign (http://www.yre.global/litter-less-campaign) is a joint initiative of the Wrigley Company Foundation and FEE (Foundation for Environmental Education) and is implemented in schools running the Eco-Schools, LEAF (Learning About Forests) and/or YRE programmes. The Campaign aims to engage and educate young people on the issue of litter and encourage them to make positive choices. Young journalists are encouraged to carry out investigations on local environmental issues and report through investigative reporting and photojournalism.   Participating schools will be able to network with students from the 10 participating countries and produce joint projects. Schools may be assisted through in house workshops to produce articles, videos and photos addressing key litter issues. They are also urged to organise a Community Action Day to reach out to the wider school community and to further promote their campaigns through local media. Exhibits showcasing the students’ work will be put up at St James Cavalier for viewing by the local public during a month long exhibition organised by Action Planet. Apart from the funding received to complete their campaigns, local schools will also be competing with their international counterparts for international prizes.   The event was supported by Majjistral Nature and History Park, Gaia Foundation, Din l-Art Helwa, the Scout Association of Malta, WasteServ, Malta Tourism Authority and Nectar Limited.   For further information contact Ms Audrey Gauci (YRE National Coordinator) on 79295424 or audreygauci@gmail.com.
