This video shows students of SMC Senior Secondary School, Verdala, Cospicua, doing an investigation about the large usage of plastics that people consume daily. Students did a vox-pop at the Vittoriosa Street Market where among a couple of questions, participants were encouraged to give their feedback about the usage of plastic bags. An interview was also carried out with the three Mayors of Cospicua, Vittoriosa and Senglea. Although a lot of information was provided to the students, this short video only shows comments about plastic usage and other solutions provided by local councils to reduce plastic consumption.

TUNNEL VISION?

submitted by San Anton School : Elena Castaldi Paris, Nina Mamo  for 11-14

The proposed project of an underwater tunnel between mainlnd malta and the sister island of Gozo will leave a negative environmental impact on the sea and land. The digging and dredging needed for the project will disturb habitats and destroy ecosystems in the area. Gozo offers unique characteristics that are diverse from Mlata. The villages spread out along the island are of cultural interest in their own quaint way. Will this be jeopardized if the tunnel link materialises and Gozo will be turned into a smaller version of hectic mainland Malta? Give citizens a voice and see what the majority says!
