Abstract: We all heard the saying, ‘We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children’, attributed to the late David Brower, prominent environmentalist. This proverb seems to try to inculcate in us the notion of environmental stewardship, which goes beyond window dressing attitudes. In keeping with this, in 2015 all UN member states including Malta adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development which provides a shared blueprint for environmental governance. The underpinnings of the Agenda are 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which recognize that ending poverty inherently complements strategies that improve health and education thereby decreasing inequality, spurring economic growth and spearheading environmental governance.
