Malta Independent - - NEWS -

Ear­lier to­day Fon­daz­zjoni Cer­a­to­nia, Al­ter­nat­tiva Demokratika‘s cul­tural and ed­u­ca­tional foun­da­tion, in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the De­part­ment of So­ci­ol­ogy of the Univer­sity of Malta held a sem­i­nar with the theme: ‘To­wards a Zero Car­bon So­ci­ety’. The Green Euro­pean Foun­da­tion to which Fon­daz­zjoni Cer­a­to­nia is af­fil­i­ated also lent its help to pro­mote the sem­i­nar.

The sem­i­nar’s ob­jec­tive was to dis­cuss in­put from aca­demics and the pub­lic on mov­ing to­wards a zero car­bon fu­ture.

AD Sec­re­tary Gen­eral Ralph Cas­sar stated: “We are mak­ing a com­mit­ment to de­velop poli­cies lead­ing to a zero car­bon so­ci­ety. A zero car­bon so­ci­ety is pos­si­ble, as other coun­tries are show­ing if there is the po­lit­i­cal will to get there.”

Mr Cas­sar added: “Coun­tries and firms world­wide are start­ing to take this con­cept se­ri­ously. It’s high time that Malta starts plan­ning for a car­bon neu­tral fu­ture as well if we want a bet­ter qual­ity of life for all. AD will con­tinue to be at the fore­front when it comes to work­ing to im­prove the qual­ity of life of all res­i­dents of Malta and Gozo.”
