Friends of the Earth Malta
Friends of the Earth Malta has been active in the environmental field in Malta since 1985. Originally created under the name of Żgħażagħ Għall-Ambjent (Youths for the Environment), the organisation later became widely known as Moviment Għall-Ambjent (Movement for the Environment).
We are an independent organisation that is distinct from any political party. It is also not directly affiliated with any other environmental group in Malta, but it works with several social and environmental NGOs on issues that are of common concern and interest.
Friends of the Earth Malta aims to work on the ground with local communities and other organisations in order to provide engaging campaigns.

What is the School of Sustainability?
This project consists of a three year grant by the European Commission that will allow Friends of the Earth Malta to implement informal education activities, develop critical understanding, and promote action amongst EU citizens on some of the most important development, environmental and social justice issues facing people and the planet today.
The European “School of Sustainability” project began in April 2015, and will run for a period of 3 years. The entire consortium consists of 23 partners from the Friends of the Earth European network of national Friends of the Earth groups and Young Friends of the Earth groups.
