For Our Trees - Ed Dingli
The current Covid-19 situation further highlights the importance of nature and green spaces for people’s psychological (and physical) wellbeing. In difficult times, people will always find solace in the outdoors. Besides the obvious need for clean air, the human connection with nature is rooted in our evolution. Instead of recognising these facts and using this time to rethink its priorities, the government has taken two key decisions against nature (re-opening the hunting season and allowing construction work to continue despite the lockdown). These decisions show a complete disregard for both Malta’s environment as well as its people. Our island is beautiful, if we would just let it be. I urge you to print out these posters and join together in unison to stop the destruction of our land.
