34 in­di­vid­u­als recog­nised for their con­tri­bu­tion towards the sus­tain­able devel­op­ment goals in Malta

Malta Independent - - BUSINESS -

As part of its com­mit­ment to push the UN 2030 Agenda for Sus­tain­able Devel­op­ment amongst all sec­tors of so­ci­ety, Ju­nior Cham­ber In­ter­na­tional Malta launched the nom­i­na­tions for the #Glob­alGoals Awards ear­lier this year to rec­og­nize in­di­vid­u­als be­tween 18 to 40 years of age, that are con­tribut­ing towards the Sus­tain­able Devel­op­ment Goals.

By the close of the nom­i­na­tions in Au­gust, 34 in­di­vid­u­als from Malta have been iden­ti­fied by the gen­eral public to be mak­ing an im­pact in their com­mu­ni­ties through their work, ac­tivism or ini­tia­tives.

On the 14th Oc­to­ber, an Awards night will be held to crown 10 of these nom­i­nees as the top win­ners in their re­spec­tive cat­e­gory fol­low­ing an eval­u­a­tion process held by 5 in­ter­na­tional judges.

“Aware­ness is the first step towards achiev­ing the Global Goals and through iden­ti­fy­ing in­spi­ra­tional in­di­vid­u­als that act as role mod­els, we felt it is an in­no­va­tive way of how this aware­ness could be raised” said Clayton Mer­cieca, Na­tional Pres­i­dent of JCI Malta. “This awards pro­gramme served as an ideal plat­form to put a spot­light on such in­di­vid­u­als that de­serve to be rec­og­nized and for the gen­eral public to know more about what is be­ing done to save the planet”.
