School Projects

The LIFE Integrated Project supports the implementation of Malta’s 2nd River Basin Management Plan through the undertaking of several measures aimed at optimising the use of water resources in the Maltese Islands. Action C.4 under this project focuses on educational activities promoting the conservation of water resources.

LIFE School Projects

These activities include an annual call for project initiatives to be undertaken in schools to promote the better use of water resources. These project initiatives include an educational dimension aimed at ensuring the active participation of students in the development and implementation of the initiative. This in order to increase awareness in students of the need to optimise the use water in the Maltese islands.

The themes for these projects are Rainwater Harvesting and Water Conservation, and the projects tackle one or both of these themes. The projects need to be identified by the students and the activities evnsiaged as part of the project need to be undertaken in the schools and/or their immediate surroundings. A comprehensive approach, and therefore involving the whole school, must be applied for the activities.

During the past 5 years we had a number of schools that took part in this initiative

Transfer of Knowledge Projects

The transfer of Knowledge Project is a school competition divided into three separate categories (story telling, photography and other art forms). Students are encouraged to seek past domestic and agricultural water management practices from parents and grandparents who remember a time when water was communally perceived as a scarce precious resource and great effort and care had to be made to use water efficiently and to harvest rainwater. Students shall need to depict this information through a chosen art form. The objective of this action is for children to speak to their elders about water management to transfer this knowledge between generations and to preserve and disseminate this knowledge through art.
