Nature Trust – FEE Malta is proud to announce that, through the YRE (Young Reporters for the Environment) programme, Malta will be part of the International Litter Less Campaign.

YRE is a programme designed specifically for students. The main aim is to carry out investigations on local environmental issues and report through investigative reporting and photojournalism.  The goal of YRE is to engage youth in environmental issues.

The Litter Less Campaign ( is a joint initiative of the Wrigley Company Foundation and FEE and is implemented in schools running the Eco-Schools, LEAF 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. Schools participating in EkoSkola/LEAF are encouraged to integrate programmes. Participating schools will be able to network with students from the 10 participating countries and produce joint projects.
