Climate Change Action Awards

Climate change action awards banner 

The #ClimateOn Campaign has already started to engage with many different important and contributing sectors in the fight against Climate Change. Examples include the private sector, educational sector, and the industrial sector; with the ultimate aim of delivering the message for the need of progressive change in everyday actions. The Climate Action Awards will serve as the culmination of the first edition of the Campaign, where all the work and collaborations carried out throughout the year 2021, will be acknowledged and recognized.  

The aim of the Climate Action Awards is to recognize and celebrate the actions and achievements taken by local businesses, public and private organisations, groups and individuals in the fight against climate change across the Maltese Islands. The Awards will seek to act as a catalyst in encouraging and inspiring others to take action towards reducing emissions and adapting to climate change. 

To this purpose, the Ministry for the Environment, Climate Change and Planning (MECP) invites and encourages all those eligible to take up the challenge and the opportunity to help deliver change on our islands. The Climate Action Awards will culminate in an awards ceremony later in 2021, where the most creative, innovative, and ingenious local climate initiatives, projects and actions will be recognized and awarded.
