3rd Edition of the FEE Fest – One Stop Shop for ESD

November 30, 2018

Nature Trust – FEE Malta organises the FEE Fest whereby most entities that collaborate with and support the ESD programmes international ESD programmes Eco-Schools (locally known as EkoSkola), Young Reporters for the Environment (YRE) and Learning About Forests (LEAF) come together under one roof.

For the past fifteen years Nature Trust-FEE Malta had been unstintingly engaging schools and communities in Education for Sustainable Development (ESD). This is the done mainly through its flagship international ESD programmes Eco-Schools (locally known as EkoSkola), Young Reporters for the Environment (YRE) and Learning About Forests (LEAF).

All these ESD programmes are run by the international organisation FEE – Foundation for Environmental Education. To this effect, each year, Nature Trust – FEE Malta organises the FEE Fest whereby most entities that collaborate with and support the ESD programmes come together under one roof.

The FEE Fest which is in its third edition, is a three day event were learners and educators can become more familiar with various other ESD initiatives. This year the event will be held on the 26th, 27th and 28th November 2018 at San Ġorġ Preca College Middle School, Blata l-Bajda from 9.00 am and 12.30 pm each day.

This one-stop-shop event provides attendees the opportunity to develop ideas for cross-curricular work, obtain information about various sustainable projects and initiatives and an excellent platform for networking in a fun and friendly atmosphere. Participants are free to attend exhibition stalls and scheduled sessions on any day and plan their visit according to their particular interests and needs.

Each year Nature Trust – FEE Malta seeks partnerships with various entities and participates in various local and international ESD initiatives to further equip learners with an array of ESD skills and competences required to develop into informed, active and responsible citizens

The Litterless Campaign which is run jointly by Wrigley Company Foundation and FEE through the YRE programme, is one such initiative. The Water Explorer programme managed by Global Action Plan UK, run locally by Nature Trust – FEE Malta through its Eco-Schools programme and supported by the HSBC Malta Foundation is another great opportunity for local schools. Both projects are fast becoming popular and will run for the second year running. A number of participating schools will also be receiving support funding to execute their action plans.

The Minister for Transport, Infrastructure and Capital projects, Ian Borg and Minister for Education and Employment Mr Evarist Bartolo both attended the event going around the various stalls and workshops and speaking with teachers and students present.
