Kontu tafu li aħna wieħed mill-pajjiżi Ewropej li niġġeneraw ammont mhux ħażin ta’ skart? Kull persuna awtomatikament tiġġenera ammont ta’ skart kukjum. Dan l-iskart jintbagħad il-‘landfill’ li din dejjem qed tiżdied. Dan ma jfissirx li mhux qed jiġu implimentati programmi għat-tnaqqis tal-iskart, anzi f’dawn l-aħħar snin il-pajjiż tagħna għamel ħafna kambjanet għall-aħjar f’dan il-qasam. Aħna t-tfal konxji ħafna ta’ dan u ġewwa l-iskola tagħna naħdmu flimkien sabiex dan l-ammont li aħna niġġeneraw nippruvaw innaqsuh. Flimkien matul is-sena nimplimentaw diversi attivitajiet li bihom nkunu nistgħu nagħmlu dan. Dan isir flmkien bħala komunita’ tal-iskola kif ukoll magħna ijipparteċipaw ukoll il-ġenituri tagħna, u xi nies oħra tal-lokal. Dan nagħmluh għaliex dak li nitgħallmu aħna nippruvaw ngħadduh lil ħaddieħor f’azzjonijiet prattiċi ta’ kuljum sabiex inħarsu dejjem aktar l-ambjent ta’ madwarna.

During that hour we were also involved in classroom activities related to pollution. Click on this link to watch our video clip:

YRE Winner – Article 11-14yrs: White Gold Pans

submitted by St. Margaret College Boys Secondary Verdala : Benjamin Abela  for 11-14
dissemination(s): school media
filed under Articles

The salt-pans of Marsascala date probably back to Roman times and they need continuous protection, restoration and conservation. Meanwhile, Marsascala salt-pans remain under constant threat from the ferocity of the sea and the storms which from time to time ravage the Marsascala Coast. Financial help is needed to keep most of the abandoned salt-pans of Marsascala free from invasive exotic plant species and alien vegetation ensuring a good production of salt locally.

YRE Winner – Article 15-18yrs: From iWant to E-waste, the Footprint of our Digital Age

submitted by G. F. Abela Junior College : Nicholas Zammit  for 15-18

filed under Articles

This article deals with the topic of electronic waste, or e-waste, a significant problem in our increasingly digital society. E-waste is an invisible form of waste for many people, who do not realise the impact of throwing away electronic goods. The environmental consequences of improper disposal are extremely harmful due to the heavy elements contained within a product. Ways of solving this problem are being further developed, both at a local and EU level. However, the consumer is the key to reducing e-waste, as adjusting the rate of purchase of electronic goods to a slower pace would reduce this waste stream.

Glass is like a rock, it doesn’t decompose. A bottle that you throw in the field next door may be broken in a hundred pieces, but it will remain as something foreign to this environment. Yet, if recycled it can still be of use to our society. It only takes a minute to place it in a recycling bin. It’s your choice!!!!!
