A fantastic two days was had by all, at the LEAF National Operators Meeting, in Malta! Day 1, was full of engaging workshops and interesting presentations. New LEAF National Operators were welcomed and Anthony Purcell from An Taisce, LEAF member organisation, Ireland spoke about the research being conducted into the LEAF programme.
Day 2, delegates were taken on a guided tour of Malta's treasured Buskett Woodland, with Mark Causon. They heard about the great efforts being done to protect the trees there. Delegates celebrated LEAF Global Action Days and International Day of Forests by planting approximately 20 native trees in the Woodland. The day ended with two best practice activities from LEAF Latvia, which focused on carbon storage in trees for older students, and LEAF Japan, which focused on forests and products for younger students.
An exciting, engaging, inspiring few days was had by all! LEAF International would like to thank the energetic team of the Nature Trust Malta - NTM for hosting a wonderful LEAF NOM!
