Secondary Education

Dinja Waħda Secondary is a programme for sustainability education in secondary schools. It aims to connect young people with nature, creates opportunities for critical thinking about the impact of our lifestyle on the environment and for taking action to address these issues.

The secondary Dinja Waħda programme consists of three different categories:

  • Action for Biodiversity which aims to enhance Malta’s biodiversity and serve as a learning platform for outdoor education
  • Connecting with Nature which aims to build a relationship between children and nature that generates knowledge about and care for the natural environment
  • Outreach for awareness which aims to build an understanding of the complexity of environmental sustainability issues and develop skills for taking action through raising awareness

The secondary school awards are based on commitment to biodiversity and sustainability education. Schools can win gold, silver or bronze awards for completing actions for each category.
