Christopher PortelliMalta
I started my education at Chiswick House School and later at St. Augustine College from where I graduated in 2022. My desire to work in the hospitality sector and a keen interest in the environment around us led me to a Diploma course in Climate Friendly Travel, at the Institute of Tourism Studies, Malta. Following my first year of academic studies, I acquired the necessary skills and knowledge to assist the travel and tourism sector in becoming sustainable and climate resilient. During my studies, I interacted and worked with a diverse group of students, enabling me to refine my interpersonal and teamwork skills. I am about to embark on my second part of the journey: as a Climate Friendly Travel Diploma Intern, I will be working with local businesses and communities to help them grow sustainably and accelerate climate actions.

Hannah DalliMalta
My name is Hannah Dalli; I started my education at Sacred Heart College in Malta  and once I was done with my high school education I went on to study  Travel and  Tourism at Institute of Tourism Studies Malta. Thereafter I obtained a  Certificate and Diploma in Travel and Tourism and a new found interest  in Climate Friendly Travel. I enrolled for the Postgraduate Diploma in  Climate Friendly Travel through SUNx Malta in Collaboration with ITS. During the first year of the CFT course I learned so much and gained  relevant skills and knowledge to  improve our Tourism sector and to become more mindful and also how  to improve in certain areas. During my first year I have worked and  talked with many diverse people which has improved my communication  skills and also my teamwork skills. I will soon be starting my second  year where I will be able to act on what I learned and also teach others. I will be working mostly with local businesses to help them  grow in more sustainable way.
