Meet the Team

Our people have more than just green fingers

Working towards the protection of the environment for the benefit of both people and all other living things necessitates a diverse set of skills and talents. Above all, it requires a longstanding passion for the environment and for every individual who calls it home.

Our team, board members, and volunteers are all advocates for our planet and they each bring a positive mix of skills and experience to help Friends of the Earth Malta achieve its mission and spread its core values.
