Just got back from the International Journal of Arts and Sciences (IJAS) conference in Malta, and I have to say it couldn't have been better. Here I met with other educators and creatives from all around the world to discuss global issues facing education, business, and science. It was so rewarding to share our respective views on the issues facing our world in a historic setting with such a varied history. Throughout history, Malta's location has given it great strategic importance, and a succession of powers including the Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans, Arabs, Normans, Aragonese, Habsburg Spain, Knights of St John, French and the British ruled the islands. Malta gained independence from the United Kingdom in 1964 and became a republic in 1974, whilst retaining membership in the Commonwealth of Nations. Malta was admitted to the United Nations in 1964 and to the European Union in 2004. Malta is also party to the Schengen Agreement and in 2008 it became part of the eurozone.
