More than 250 academics at University of Malta join pro-environment protest

Monday, 22 May 2023, 08:46 Last update: about 10 months ago

Academics at the University of Malta said Monday they will join Moviment Graffitti, Friends of the Earth Malta, Flimkien għal Ambjent Aħjar, Din l-Art Ħelwa, Nature Trust Malta-FEE, Għawdix, BirdLife Malta and Ramblers’ Association Malta, in promoting an economic model that equitably enhances quality of life, and in demanding institutional and policy reforms in the fields of environment, planning, and lands. 

Academics recognise that whilst many elements of our economic and planning models have been highly successful, a systematic evaluation is urgently needed to assess their weaknesses and the growing threats to quality of life, cultural and natural heritage in Malta. Research undertaken by scholars at the University of Malta and elsewhere presents an opportunity for such an evaluation to be based on evidence.

A national protest to safeguard the environment is planned for Saturday
