Climate change is the single biggest environmental threat facing our planet, Friends of the Earth Malta said. Burning too much coal, oil and gas increases the greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, which in turn heats up the planet.
On 27 February the organisation will be launching its climate change campaign together with Friends of the Earth groups in 17 countries across Europe. The launch will take place at City Gate in Valletta at 4pm. Local bands will be playing live music and together with volunteers from Friends of the Earth Malta will be raising awareness on the issue of climate change. During the launch, FoE Malta will be announcing how individuals can participate in Europe-wide actions to curb climate change.
