Working to protect our environment for both people and all other living beings requires many different skills and talents. Above all it requires a passion for the planet and everyone who calls it home. Our board members and volunteers are all advocates for our planet and they bring with them a complex mix of skills and experience to help Friends of the Earth Malta achieve its mission.

Caroline Gatt
Treasurer

Graduated in anthropology in 2002, University of Malta, having carried out my undergraduate dissertation with Nature Trust Malta. I started working with FoE Malta on a ´people-up´ project called "Community Centres for Sustainable Living". Working on this project taught me a great deal about how closely related democracy and environmentalism really are, and how anthropology offers practical tools to develop our ideas. Currently, I am carrying out fieldwork with FoE Malta, FoE Brazil, and the FoEI secretariat as part of my doctoral research in anthropology, University of Aberdeen."
