The mission of BirdLife Malta is to conserve wild birds, their habitats and biodiversity, working with people towards sustainability in the use of natural resources.
For more than 50 years, BirdLife Malta has been an advocate for the protection of Maltese wildlife. We engage Maltese people in their natural environment, and ensure a natural legacy is left for the next generation.
BirdLife Malta’s education mission is to provide opportunities for children, young people and adults to connect with nature, empowering them to make environmentally responsible decisions.
BirdLife Malta believes that outdoor learning:
• Can enhance a child’s learning across the curriculum
• Has the capacity to facilitate personal and social development
• Should be linked to education for environmental sustainability
• Can provide important opportunities for health and wellbeing
We are a team of 9 staff who specialise in outdoor learning and delivering education programmes. Our work includes a school programme called Dinja Waħda, (One World), which is an action guide guiding the teacher to deliver nature education programmes through the curriculum, teacher training, events and non-formal education sessions for families and youth groups.
We developed One World Learning as an opportunity to share experiences, knowledge and resources that will enable us to be more effective and have greater impact on encouraging future generations to care for our planet and make environmentally responsible decisions.
In the future, we are interested to learn about how other organisations inspire people to care for the environment, we would like to undertake more research to understand the effectiveness of our programmes and we would like to continue building our programmes to connect children, young people and adults with nature.
