BOV launches ‘Rebbiegħa’ initiative

Friday, 2 February 2024, 12:27 Last update: about 4 months ago

Bank of Valletta is issuing an open call to all registered NGOs operating within the Maltese Islands to participate in the BOV Rebbiegħa initiative.

This initiative forms part of the Bank's 50th anniversary activities and is aimed at revitalising and protecting Malta's environment while fostering a greater understanding and care for the natural environment around us. These actions would, in turn, bring a better sense of well-being for all communities and lead to tangible action to leave a better living space for future generations.

The BOV Rebbiegħa CSR  initiative is an open call for proposals for environmental projects that directly impact four important aspects of the environment. These are:

§  Biodiversity in the Maltese Islands - exploring the protection and rehabilitation of Malta's flora and fauna;

§  Urban Greenery -  exploring how through the project proposed urban communities can live in greener areas;

§  Educating our Community -  exploring how we can educate our community in bringing positive change to their surrounding environment and

§  Mitigating Climate Challenges- exploring the impact of climate change on our archipelago and how we can mitigate this.

The selected projects will be reviewed by a dedicated team within Bank of Valletta and the final selection will be based on a number of predetermined criteria which include the quality of the proposals, the positive impact they will be having on the environment, and the extent of creativity and envisaged effectiveness of the project.

Submissions can be made sent via the following link: The BOV Rebbiegħa Initiative . Any number of submissions can be made by one party, as long as they fall under one or more of the four pillars mentioned. The closing date for submissions is the 30th of April 2024. For more information on how to apply, NGOs may contact the Bank on [email protected].
