Gozo week held at the University of Malta campus
The ‘Gozo Week’ was organised by the Gozo University Group in collaboration with the Ministry for Gozo and the ecoGozo Regional Development Directorate which took place at the University of Malta campus between the 27th February and 2nd March 2012.
Various events and activities took place during this week, as well as six stands portraying Gozo and its characteristics. One of the stands displayed a photo exhibition by Gozitan photographers while another had traditional Gozitan produced food. Other stands featured the tourist sector in Gozo, the island’s culture, Mġarr ix-Xini Regional Park and eco-Gozo Projects.
Gozitan talent was also present throughout these days with various artists performing on campus to entertain the students.
“GUG’s aim is to promote Gozitan Culture and society to highest levels and with that in mind a new subject has been included in the Degree Plus Field, that of ‘Gozitan Studies.” This was launched during ‘Gozo Week,’ when the first lecture was held. This will be the first official course on the subject of Gozo.
GUG said that it would like to thank all the sponsors without whom the event could not take place, particularly the Ministry for Gozo and the ecoGozo Regional Development Directorate for believing in this event, Gozo Culture, Legend Real Estate, Gozo Tourism Association, Jubilee Foods, Xewkija Local Council and the Gozo Business Chamber.
