The first-ever national Malta Sustainability Forum was announced this week and will take place at the Westin Dragonara Resort on 14th November.
This pioneering event will raise awareness about sustainability and empower citizens – whether as individuals or as part of organisations – to make conscious decisions that lead to a more sustainable lifestyle.
Starting at 11am, the conference will allow participants to develop a better understanding of the social, environmental and economic challenges the world is facing in the context of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set by the United Nations.
No less than 20 local and international speakers who have decided to make the planet a better place to live will present practical cases, followed by moderated discussions.
The Forum will begin with a speech by HE The President of Malta, Dr George Vella, and a keynote by the Hon. Minister José Herrera – Minister for the Environment, Sustainable Development, and Climate Change. Other speakers will then include Adrien Labaeye – Sharing Cities Fellow and PhD researcher at Humboldt Universität zu Berlin, Carl Pratt – Founder of Future Planet, Nicole Klaesener-Metzner from the Aegle Foundation, and Zen D’Amato Gautam from Eco Market Malta amongst others.
The forum, organised by APS Bank and co-sponsored by COOL, GASAN MAMO, GO and PWC, is the most forward-thinking event about Sustainability to happen in Malta this year. It is meant to be a yearly event and contribute to position Malta at the forefront of the sustainability agenda.
Speaking about the Forum, APS Bank CEO Marcel Cassar said: “As Malta’s community bank, we are dedicated to creating sustainable solutions that help to safeguard our clients and our society. We are thrilled to be part of this event, and to bring some of the best minds together to champion and inspire people from all walks of life to achieve sustainability in their own lives, homes and organisations.”
