Between the 19th and 23rd of July, Nadur will represent Malta and host the meeting for the Charter of European Rural Communities.
The Minister for Gozo, Justyne Caruana said that this initiative is the fruit of the ministry’s vision for Gozo. The conference will include international discussions. She praised the local council of Nadur for this interesting initiative and collaboration with the Ministry for Gozo for the meeting to take place in Gozo.
Caruana thanked the Valletta 2018 Foundation since, she said, it is with their vision that the cultural aspect is appreciated by the whole country as it leaves a positive impact on the respective communities.
The Chairman of the Valletta 18 Foundation Jason Micallef stated that “this project is an example of what Valletta 18 stands for – a cultural project that includes people from different divisions of life, communities, cultures and diverse experiences. The European Charter is an example of the way culture can bring people together.” He continued to say that foreigners visiting for this event will be experiencing a taste of Valletta 2018 and the cultural regeneration of the capital city throughout the year, during the last day of their stay.
The mayor of Nadur, Edward Said, said that they are expecting around 200 people from 28 countries in the European Union. The main theme will be that of solidarity and a cultural taste of all that Gozo has to offer.
