The first-ever Green Vision Summit & Expo (GVSE) in Malta will witness the presence of Dr. Vandana Shiva, a well-known environmental activist often referred to as the Gandhi of Grain, Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca, Former President of the Republic of Malta, and Marc Buckley, a Regenerative Futurist, alongside other esteemed figures in the industry. The event is organised by GSE Technologies and has received support from the Malta Tourism Authority, the Parliamentary Secretariat for Youths, Research and Innovation, the Ministry for Agriculture, Fisheries and Animal Rights, and the Ministry for the Environment, Energy and Regeneration of the Grand Harbour.

With the theme of “Humanity, Technology, and the Future,” this gathering of influential individuals and global change-makers from around the world will pave the way for participants to share their insights and expertise on pressing issues such as food and water, tourism and hospitality, and the future of humanity. Given the current challenge of irreparably harming the livable conditions of our planet, these sustainability experts will set the stage for collaborative efforts and amplify the call for practical changes in the industries that sustain us.

Other notable speakers at the GVSE include HRM Notse Prof. Nortey Owuo IV, the King of Osu, Ghana, who is bringing his cultural and academic wisdom to complement the shared commitment of responsible global leaders in shaping a resilient future.

Benedikt Bosel, the Creator and Producer of the documentary series ‘Farm Rebellion’ aired on Disney+; Noah Falstein, the former Chief Game Designer at Google and creator of transformational Games; and Chris Caldwell, an expert in renewable energy and corporate financing, among others.

Sabrina Agius, the CEO of GSE Technologies and convener of the GVSE, emphasised the event’s objective to move beyond mere discussions and take action. She stated, “We are convening a gathering of global leaders, policymakers, activists, and industry experts to address the urgent challenge of climate change and seek sustainable solutions for a brighter future. Having these distinguished figures is not to classify our event on the high-profile spectrum, but because we need these people to influence change for good. We have reached a critical point where empty promises and debates are no longer acceptable. The question is not whether to act, but why we are wasting time debating when we should have already started taking action. This is not a matter of survival of the fittest; it is a shared responsibility for all of us.”

Climate activist, Elizabeth Wathuti who is also the visionary Founder of the Green Generation Initiative, corroborated Agius’s comment, noting, “I am truly honoured to join esteemed environmental champions and thought leaders at the inaugural Green Vision Summit & Expo 2024 in Malta. In a world where the urgency of climate action has never been more apparent, this gathering serves as a critical platform to amplify our voices and catalyse tangible solutions towards a sustainable world. As we navigate the complex challenges of our time, we must move beyond dialogue and into action. Together, we must commit to innovative strategies and collaborative efforts that prioritise sustainability and resilience. I am excited to engage with fellow change-makers and contribute to the collective momentum towards a greener, more equitable future.”  

Expressing delight in participating in the Green Vision Summit & Expo, HRM Notse Prof. Nortey Owuo IV, the King of Osu, Ghana, said, “In our changing world, where each day provides an example of climate change’s impact, the Green Vision Summit presents a platform for all, including indigenous communities to engage, plan and tackle issues with sustainable principles. I look forward to bringing our traditional wisdom and know-how to the Sustainable journey.” 

The Green Vision Summit & Expo will feature engaging panel discussions, interactive workshops, startup pitch opportunities, and thought-provoking keynote addresses, enabling the exchange of ideas, best practices, and collaborations. Attendees will have the chance to explore innovative solutions, cutting-edge technologies, and sustainable products presented by exhibitors from various sectors.

The inaugural GVSE aims to establish a platform for collective action and collaboration, driving transformative change in the global fight against climate change. It seeks to accelerate progress towards sustainable development goals, promote international cooperation, and inspire individuals, organisations, and governments to take bold steps forward.
