Zero Waste Camp

We are organising a two day live-in activist camp/workshop from Saturday 24th to Sunday 25th of March at Xrobb l-Għaġin Nature Park. The scope of the event is to learn how to cut down on plastic use and waste-generation on a personal level and also how we can take action to move towards a zero-waste society. The full programme is still to come, however the following sessions are planned for the weekend:

Being a Zero-Waste Activist

Setting context for the event—what is the current National, EU and Global situation? Why do we need to take action? We will be sharing good practices and developing ways of how to reduce waste at home, in office spaces, at schools and how to put pressure on businesses and catering establishment.

Repair Cafes for Zero Waste Communities 

A lot of items we discard can easily be fixed with a little bit with a little bit of care and with the help of friends who are a little bit more knowledgable and good with their hands. We will launch a repair cafe, with at least 3 repair stations, one for clothes repair, one for bicycle repair and one more for electronic repair. This will be a way of sharing our knowledge, helping each other out, and learning of how to easily fix things.

(if you have repair skills you would like to share and contribute to the event, send us an email on resourceuse@foemalta.org)

Clean-up Event 

On Sunday morning we will be taking action and clean-up a site at Delimara, in the vicinity of Xrobb l-Għaġin.

Networking Evening

We invite whoever is already working (or is interested in becoming active) in the area of waste reduction, clean-ups, tackling the issue of litter to a Networking Evening. The scope is to introduce ourselves, what we are working on, what we want to work on, what common goals all of us have and how we can collaborate, join forces and work on a common campaign.

Two sessions on how to move towards a zero-waste lifestyle at home, such as zero waste meals, food preservation etc, and on making your own household cleaning products.
