According to the Eurostat published in March 2021, Malta’s forest land cover stands at a little over 1%, with increasing urbanisation and number of vehicles on our roads contributing to a reduction in air quality.
There is a growing need for intentional green spaces in Malta where people can get away from the hustle and bustle of urban life and have safe, accessible and meaningful interactions with nature. Green Living Malta aims to promote sustainable values through safe, accessible and meaningful interactions with nature, whilst mitigating the adverse effects of our modern built surroundings.
Hope Grove is an afforestation project that offers an escape from the overwhelming presence of concrete; an opportunity to disconnect from the demands of the modern technological life-style and the perfect location for relaxation, and reconnecting with friends and family whilst being immersed in natural surroundings.
Within the first six months of the establishment of Hope Grove, this project will contribute to:
- A new, natural green area for the benefit of everyone in Malta
- Cleaner air/combatting air pollution and the Urban Heat Island Effect
- Providing ecosystem services
- Reduction in stress, anxiety and other chronic health conditions
- Better interpersonal relationships
- Environmental education opportunities
- A better future for our children
The total budget for Hope Grove is €62,050
CROWDFUNDING will help us to cover the costs of:
- Preparing the land for trees
- Acquiring equipment
- Development of natural Pathways and provision of amenities
Help us reach our goal and be part of the change!
