From the 9th till the 15th of March ESN Malta alongside all 550 ESN Sections across 42 countries will be organising activities during the Health and Wellbeing Week.

The aim of this European initiative is to involve local and international students in activities focused on sports, healthy lifestyle, nutrition, responsible party, mental health and other areas, as well as to show international students that they can adopt a healthy lifestyle while being on exchange.
