Politics is all about plans, mainly plans on how to improve life and living. The quality of life depends a lot on our choices and these directly impinge on our surroundings. Land and resource use and planning have been with us for quite a few decades now. However, we frequently complain of the urban sprawl, of the expense of the water, of the lack of greenery. Newsbook.com.mt reaffirms its commitment to the environment, particularly on this the fifth anniversary of the pivotal encyclical ‘Laudato Si’ by Pope Francis.

Newsbook.com.mt will ask:

  • What is our relationship with the land?
  • Do we have a national strategy where the environment is concerned?
  • Do we plan well?
  • Do we keep to what we plan?
  • Do our plans respect nature: ecosystems, biodiversity, climate?
  • Do we use or abuse our natural resources: water, stone, soil?
  • How does all this tie into the fifth anniversary of the landmark Papal encyclical Laudato Si by Pope Francis?

On Thursday 24th September, between 10:00-11:30am, Newsbook.com.mt will be organising a webinar themed “How are we planning to live?”

The main speakers will be the Minister for the environment, climate change and planning Hon Dr Aaron Farrugia, Opposition spokesperson for Energy, and Water Management & Conservation the Hon Ing. Ryan Callus, Manuel Sapiano from the Energy and Water Agency, Perit Michelle Piccinino from Environment and Resources Authority, architect and environmentalist Prof. Alex Torpiano, Perit Simone Vella Lenicker from Kamra tal-Periti, Konrad Pule from Malta Public Transport and Sebastian Ripard from Bolt.
