A word from Minister
We are constantly working to provide more open spaces around Malta. We’re working with various Local Councils, such collaborations are leading to the identification of abandoned areas that are being rehabilitated and regenerated.
Sustainability is an integral part of every project we are implementing. These parks will be equipped with renewable energy and where possible reservoirs will be restored to reuse rainwater for watering trees and plants.
