National Climate Change Conference 26th October 2021


Climate On Logo



Brief description


Way back in 2015 the Government of Malta adopted a Climate Change Act which sets actions towards climate change. This commitment was confirmed by the declaration of a climate emergency in the Maltese Parliament two years ago.

Commitment was and still is constant and funds are allocated to bring about the necessary transition. This has translated into a number of schemes for alternative energy installations, schemes for electric cars, as well as various environmental afforestation and tree planting projects and green infrastructure projects in urban areas.

It is undeniable that the public sector plays a crucial role in leading towards the achievement of specific environmental targets, as well as encouraging and engaging the community to be more climate conscious. In this respect the government’s commitment has resulted in taking major steps toward combatting climate change.

In response to the climate change crisis, the Ministry of Environment, Climate Change and Planning (MECP) has launched a nationwide public awareness campaign to promote climate action. The #ClimateOn campaign aims to change the habits of the general public towards a more innovative way of life and to generate thoughts for innovative solutions with a focus on the benefits of a low-carbon society.

Indeed, central to the campaign are the very concepts within the Low Carbon Development Strategy, which was launched for public consultation earlier this year. The LCDS governance framework pays particular attention to the active participation of stakeholders at all levels of society, as well as the promotion of climate-related education. Capacity building is also identified as a key component, as it fosters the expertise, research and innovation needed in the field of low-carbon development.

The National Climate Change Conference 2021: Gaining momentum for Climate Action, will give a platform for discussions on how we can tackle the climate crisis. The Agenda covers a range of key topics, and the event will present an opportunity to network with a number of stakeholders to share common challenges to achieve Malta’s climate targets.
