Welcome to the EkoSkola Malta website
Nature Trust (Malta) has in the past years given great importance to environmental education in our Islands so much so that we have included environmental education even in our organisation’s mission statement. It is one of the three pillars on which our NGO is built. Furthermore we strongly believe that environmental education is the very essence for a men tality change in the Maltese Islands towards environmental awareness and improvement.
It was for this very reason that we are proud to be the representatives of FEE in the Maltese Islands since 2002. This opportunity opened the way for our schools not only to be able to do something for their environment but also to have the opportunity of being awarded for their efforts by having the honour of getting the Green Flag award.
ES – The Malta Experience
Today, ten years on, I am happy to say EkoSkola has built up popularity which is increasing as we go along. Thanks to our EkoSkola programme co-ordinator Prof. Paul Pace and our six EkoSkola Officers we are steadily moving on. We are sure that one day our efforts will be further awarded by seeing communities in our Islands working towards Agenda 21. We can then say it was a complete success story. Special thanks go to the Ministries responsible for Education, Resources and Rural Affairs and Gozo, eco-Gozo, HSBC Bank Malta Ltd, WasteServ Malta Ltd and the Ministry for Tourism, Culture and the Environment for their full support.
