We are collecting signatures for an EU-wide petition ahead of COP27.
Climate change is causing 20 million people to be forced out of their home or country every year. We want our elected officials, and policy makers, to push for a just and sustainable future, an economy centred around well-being and peace for all.
Friends of the Earth Malta has joined forces with another 25 Organisations across 22 EU countries for the #ClimateOfChange campaign. This project will educate youths, and the wider general public, about climate-induced migration.
We aim to highlight the connection between migration, climate change and the need to transform our economy and change our everyday lives. The vision is to promote the needs and protect the human rights of all people, without exploiting others and destroying the environment.

During this project we are collecting signatures for an EU-wide petition ahead of the United Nations Climate Change Conference, The Conference of the Parties (COP 27), which will take place in Egypt in November 2022. The petition is calling for a just future for everyone, for systemic change and climate justice is now. Sign Here.
Additionally, we will be organising a Youth Activist Camp aimed at educating 30 participants about the
inter linkages between climate change and migration, the challenges for Malta, Europe and the world in terms of climate mitigation and adaptation. By inviting experts in the field, we will offer practical tools and share inspiring examples of climate action.
We will also organise a Climate and Migration Film Festival. The festival will be held over a weekend, where we will be screening films and documentaries which focus on issues of climate change, climate induced migration and share inspiring stories from the fossil-free movement.
