Polly Higgins in MALTA 27.05.15


I am someone who cares deeply about the Earth. I’m also a lawyer who loves the Earth. It’s not often lawyers talk about love – and it can feel strange to do so. However, I believe love and law can be brought together and when the two meet, the potential to create new laws that put people and planet first is born.

Her latest book, I Dare You To Be Great, seeks a new story of our times; one where we shift from deep harm to harmony. 

Our workshop will be all about "Daring to be Great" 

Wednesday 27th May at 7.30pm - 9pm. 
(Please be seated by 7.15pm)
Bottegin Palazzo Xara, St Paul Street, Rabat

Book your place by emailing info@greendrinksmalta.org

You are invited to join us for the DARE TO BE GREAT workshop by Polly Higgins, award winning author and renowned international speaker, recently voted one of the top 10 visionaries in the world.

Green Drinks Malta for Let's Do It Malta


The environmental NGO Let’s Do It Malta is organizing a national clean-up on Saturday 9th May 2015, which will be held at various spots throughout the Maltese islands.

The organisation had held another clean-up last year, which had attracted around 1,200 volunteers who had collected an estimated 28,000 kilos of waste. This year, the clean-up effort has already attracted some 3,000 volunteers and it is targeting some 50 different locations. In their press release the organization explained that they expected collection figures to double.

The organisation is increasingly gaining support and it is motivating the public to keep the country clean.

“Trash is becoming an invasive, offensive problem evident all around us. This is not a problem we can solve individually. Together we can show that our country deserves to be kept clean for our sake, and for the sake of future generations,” the statement reads.

Let’s Do It Malta explained that the group had developed its vision statement following its thoughts. Its aims are the reduction of public littering, promotion of active citizenship, increasing public environmental awareness, reaching a zero waste culture and helping to create a more eco-friendly mentality.

50 organizations have already confirmed their participation next Saturday, including Green Drinks Malta.  We will meet near the Aquarium in Qawra at 9am on Saturday 9th May.
