Welcome to the Action Planet education initiative. We would like to encourage schools to join us in our quest to make sustainable education fun, interactive, collaborative and proactive. Our initiative inspires and empowers children and young adults to take an active role in safeguarding the environment for present and future generations. We encourage students to become the Green Knights of Malta and Gozo to work together to make the beautiful Maltese islands more sustainable.
Action Planet brings together schools and NGOs through workshops, field trips, research, collaboration, innovation and creative expression. The individual initiatives are listed in the pages that follow and in our comprehensive school brochure. Schools are invited to participate in as many activities as they would like.
Once the education initiative closes in December schools and colleges will be invited to come together to participate in a month long exhibition at St James Cavalier in Valletta, from 16th February – 18th March 2018, forming part of the Spazju Kreativ 2018 season programme during Valletta 2018 – European City Of Culture.
The best YRE, Young Reporters for the Environment reports will be on displayed alongside artwork and creative initiatives designed by higher education students. Schools will be welcome to book a school visit to the exhibition space with the option of participating in workshops onsite.

ACTION PLANET has now launched – Join us in our quest to make Malta more sustainable!
Action Planet is a student led initiative that encourages and empowers children and young adults to take an active role in safeguarding the environment for present and future generations. Students will work alongside NGO’s and organisations that are proactively engaged in finding solutions to make Malta and the planet more sustainable. Through experiential, hands on learning they will be inspired to make informed decisions about subjects such as waste management and sustainability.
Schools are invited to join in as many or as few initiatives as they would like from clean ups, field trips (featured on our website which will be constantly updated), in class activities, YRE – Young Reporters for the Environment research projects and a visit to our exhibition and accompanying workshops.
The initiative will culminate at a month long exhibition at St James Cavalier from 16th February – 18th March 2018, forming part of the Spazju Kreattiv season programme. The exhibition is endorsed by Valletta 2018 – European City of Culture.
