The Malta-EU Steering and Action Committee (MEUSAC) organised a number of events related to Climate Change and Climate Action. One of these events (organised in collaboration with Nature Trust [Malta]’s EkoSkola programme) was the EkoSkola Young Citizens’ Summit – Promoting Wellbeing across the Commonwealth for Present and Future Generations held on 20th November 2015 at the New Dolmen Hotel, Buġibba. This special event was open for secondary schools students holding the Green Flag.
