What happened to our precious world? Is there really anything left to see here?

Construction is one of the largest industries in Malta. The high demand for property development in Malta is having a significant impact on the island’s natural environment. One of the main concerns is the loss of green spaces and the fragmentation of habitats due to urbanization. Additionally, the construction process can lead to soil erosion, water and noise pollution and can have negative effects on local biodiversity. Furthermore, construction activities generate large amounts of waste, which can be difficult to manage and dispose of in a sustainable manner. While the Maltese government has introduced regulations to minimize the environmental impact of construction, there is still much work to be done to ensure that construction activities are carried out in a sustainable and responsible way that preserves Malta’s natural environment for future generations.

Building excessive buildings everywhere is ruining our natural environment, filling our hometowns with apartment blocks, offices, casinos and hotels. What about our new generations?  What oxygen are we breathing? When are we going to stop building unsustainably? Are we ready to start taking down built-up areas and return them to nature, by planting trees instead?
