Following the Friends of the Earth Malta Strategy Meeting 2019, the following Campaign Working Groups have been established. Each working group will be focusing on the work related to these important campaigns. What working group are you interested in?
Food, Nature and Biodiversity
Eating sustainably produced food is not only good for ourselves but also for the environment. Here at Friends of the Earth Malta we believe in supporting sustainable agriculture, conserving biodiversity and working with nature. This Working Group focuses on food systems, supply chains, biodiversity and pollinators, and seeing nature as a right to all human beings.
Climate Change is now universally recognised as the biggest threat that our planet faces, with overarching impacts on ecosystems, biodiversity, and human societies. The burning of coal, oil, and gas, as well as other manmade practices such as intensive agriculture and deforestation contribute to the generation of excessive greenhouse gases that pollute the atmosphere and lead to a rising of the global temperature. Not only is climate change posing significant environmental issues, but it is increasing social inequality within and between countries. We believe that rich and industrialised countries should be most responsible for the climate crisis, so these must act first and foremost to mitigate the impacts of climate change. This campaign working groups focuses its work on climate change, energy use and transport.
Resource Use and Sufficiency
Our world has limited resources and if we are to live sustainably, we need to ensure the resource sufficiency for future generations. This campaign tackles resources such as plastics, water use, pollution, land use.
Democracy and Activism
This group focuses on civil engagement, democratic participation, activism, education and critical thinking for a sound future that ensures that environmental and social issues are made a priority.
Communication + Funding Working Group
Our Comms and Funding Working Group is a horizontal group that supports all our campaigns. If you are web savvy and good at social media graphic design, event management, fundraising, marketing, psychology or any other related area, then you will surely fit into this group. We want to reach as many people as we can with our vibrant campaigns, and you can support us to make that happen!
