Around 300 children participated in the first edition of the Nesquik Marine Festival held on Saturday 2nd November, organised by Nestlé at the Malta National Aquarium. This year, Nestlé invited the Nesquik Club members to an event designed to provide information about marine environment conservation and sharks.
The Nesquik annual educational events, now in their third year, form part of the Nestlé corporate ethos to provide children with an opportunity to enjoy themselves while engaging in educational, creative and physical activities which all contribute towards a healthy lifestyle.
The children participated in two educational workshops, one organised in collaboration with Shark Lab Malta focusing on shark breeding and behaviour while the second workshop was conducted by Dr Alan Deidun on Malta’s marine parks and how to protect the marine environment. The children also had the opportunity to visit the Malta National Aquarium for free.
Commenting about the first edition of the Nesquik Marine Festival, Ms. Melania Pellicano, Nestlé Malta Group Product Manager said: “We feel it is our duty to contribute towards a healthier and more responsible generation. Healthy habits and education are key to prepare our children as tomorrow’s leaders. Through these annual events, Nesquik aims to convey strong values and to provide awareness on the importance of physical activity and environment protection. We are also very pleased to support the Malta National Aquarium”.
