The Problem

We hope this project will empower young people to take action about their local environments and to realise that they do have the potential to create change. Through working as a team with people from different countries with different cultures we hope they can understand a different perspective and enhance their leadership and team working skills.

Our Plan

Starting in March 2016, BirdLife Malta is hosting an exciting new project called Action for Nature. It is a 20 month project involving an international exchange with scout groups from Hungary and Norway coming for 1 week to Malta. They will be running their own environmental campaign with the support of scout and BirdLife Malta leaders. The environmental campaigns are focused around the BirdLife Malta nature reserves and will work to improve the area for humans, wildlife and the environment. We have just seen the successful completion of our first exchange with a YMCA scout youth group from Hungary and the Tarxien Venture Scouts. They carried out management work on Foresta 2000 Nature Reserve and ran an open day event with around 100 people attending. They worked together as a team to raise awareness of the nature reserve and the importance of protecting Nature.
