Our theme this year is Sowing Seeds, because we want to encourage citizens to take an active role in shaping our future and the future of our planet. Għajn: a puppet show will creatively explore how we use water, and ways to protect this vital resource. In Our Warming Seas you’ll see stunning videos of Malta’s waters, and hear from experts about the changes that are happening in the seas around our islands. The Green Mental Health Routine will discuss how time in nature can contribute to better mental health.
As a special feature for this year, award-winning British comedy-science-singer-songwriter John Hinton will be performing a live music show inspired by the work of Nature Trust. His high-energy set: “Now that’s what I call a lot of songs about science”, will have you in stitches. The ever-popular SharkLab will be back with a show revealing the secrets of the misunderstood fish circling the Maltese Archipelago.
For something a bit different, join us for Meet the Body Builders, a show created by prosthetics-designers MAproHand. Contemplate how you would design a hand, and watch the process as ideas come to life.
