Virtual Youth Forum 17.9.22: Testimonials
The Virtual Youth Forum was an event that took place online on the 17th September 2022 with the theme: “I want to Connect: Maltese Language, Culture and Identity”. It was the first of its kind and the main aim was to bring together Maltese youth from all over the world, whether they are descendants of Maltese living abroad who might not have even visited the island/s or young people who were born in Malta but who are presently living abroad.
The number of participants in the Forum was encouraging and the experience a very positive one. This Forum will be the basis of any future action taken by the Ministry especially where youth are concerned. Here is what 2 participants, Jordan De Bono (Japan) and Michaela Battaglia (US) said about their experience during this event.

“A permanent symbol of this country’s tribute to Maltese emigrants and a monument witnessing Malta’s bond with them”
(Charles Buttigieg, February 13, 2021)
“The history of migration from these islands, especially post-war migration, is now to a great extent the history of the Emigrants’ Commission. That commission was providentially fortunate in that, since 1953, it has had as its driving force Mgr Philip Calleja, who, since then, has dedicated his priestly life to migrants and to all people whose life has been affected by emigration.”
(Fr Lawrence Attard OP, June 24, 1975)
