A number of Educational Programmes are carried at the Ghajn National Water Conservation Awareness Centre (Rabat, Malta), together with the branding, design and printing of a number of educational materials. Training seminars to educators have been carried out and have tackled mainly the significant water management issues on the Maltese Islands and how the activities at the Ghajn Centre can be tied to teachers’ teaching schemes as part of their curriculum.
During the COVID-19 pandemic period, the Energy and Water Agency launched its online resources to provide educational tools to educators, parents, and students to continue with the educational process despite the extraordinary circumstances we were living in. These resources took the form of short virtual video lessons aimed at primary school students, together with further online resources to complement these lessons. These are focused on water in the Maltese Islands and although they are mainly targeted towards younger audiences, they can easily be enjoyed by the general public, students, teachers, and parents alike.

The organisation of annual awareness raising events targeted towards the general public (to showcase the work being done at the Ghajn Centre and to further enhance the outreach programme in water conservation and awareness) have been carried out each year since 2018. Other similar events are planned for the coming years.
A further result is an annual call for projects in local schools, which focuses on supporting water conservation educational.
