On the 26th of November 2018, students from GCHSS participated in Polifest, a KA3 Erasmus + funded project EUPA Malta, which sessions are run by Agenzija Zghazagh personnel. Around 60 GCHSS students participated in workshops which focused around the challenges that young people are facing in today’s world.  Since it was also World Obesity Day, one of the workshops focused on weight stigma to raise awareness about the prevalence, severity and diversity of such issue.  Other challenges such as Housing, Employment and Mental Health issues were also mentioned and discussed.  The students were engaged in various discussions and they managed to come up with interesting ideas on how these challenges can be overcome.  These ideas together with others from other sessions, shall be presented to authorities which will hopefully help to influence the Youth Policy which is to be revised next year.
