The sixteenth meeting of the EcoSchool Parliament was held on Thursday, 30th July. The topic chosen for this year was about the changes in the climate. Ten schools were invited to present studies and actions regarding the climate and ongoing changes of the environment.
Jerome Carabott and Matthew Sammut, two Year 9 students representing the EcoSchool committee of our school presented a study of how our school is being affected by the quality of air around us considering that our school is situated in an industrial area. Our students had the opportunity to talk about their views on the subject with the Members of Parliament.
The Members of Parliament will be presented with a copy of the publication ‘We Care About Our Present and Our Future’. This publication contains suggestions which were discussed during the mini summits by students from 107 schools. These summits were organised as a follow-up of the conference of the United Nations about climate change 2022 (COP 26 in Glasgow).
We would like to thank Mr Joseph Savona and all the members of the EcoSchool committee for their hard work throughout this scholastic year. We congratulate Jerome and Matthew for the detailed presentation they presented in Parliament.
