The Destination: Meet the Mediterranean

Malta has faced considerable challenges in water throughout its history. Since its independence from British rule in 1964 it has made significant progress to become a leading, vibrant economy which has remained buoyant in the face of the financial recession of 2008.

The challenges in meeting the absolute scarcity of water in Malta resulted in the undertaking of having a significant water management programme. This has led to best practices being developed to meet the industrial and community needs, further compounded by an ever increasing tourism demand.

Participation in all activities is free of charge. Early registration is highly recommended.
