Eco-Gozo bookmark calendars for 2010

Eco-Gozo bookmark calendars for 2010An eco-Gozo calendar carrying educational messages related to the environment and sustainable development has been distributed to over 4000 students attending public and private schools in Gozo. This is another initiative in the eco-Gozo programme.

Minister Debono visited two schools where these calendars were being distributed and met the pupils with whom she spoke about the eco-island project and the calendar initiative. This calendar is in the form of a tear-off bookmark, and each month carries a message which ranges from the environment, healthy lifestyles, tourism to social issues.

Threee versions of this calendar have been produced; one for children aged 5 to 11, another for adolescents and a third aimed at adults. Each set carries a series of messages applicable to the different age group.

During the lauch of this initiative, Minsiter Debono explained that these calendars were intended to convey messages throughout the whole year on positive action towards sustainable development, and to promote action at the individual level in favour of the eco-Gozo vision.
