Today we continue with more great international Earth Day stories from the Earth Day Network!
In Malta, Earth Day Network partner Nature Trust is mobilizing on Earth Day to help young people understand the importance of a healthy environment.
Nature Trust, one of the oldest and largest environmental organizations in Malta, is collaborating with the U.S. Embassy in Malta to organize local schools to send students to an Earth Day talk by a climate change expert. The following morning, the students will attend an event at Xrobb I-Ghagin Nature Park. And that afternoon, there will be a roundtable discussion on climate change between representatives from the University of Malta and local politicians from Malta’s three main political parties.
“The event is to commemorate Earth Day in Malta and focus this year on the issue of climate change.” – Vincent Attard, President of Nature Trust
Oman’s Ministry of Education is mobilizing to hold Earth Day events in 1,043 schools, engaging more than 524,000 students throughout the country. They also published Earth Day Network’s green schools lesson plans on their education portal in Arabic and English.
