Project Green: 7,500 trees will be planted this year

 - Local - Jan 16 SHARE ON:

In the first 12 months, as part of the newly unveiled Project Green, the Maltese Government together with the private sector will be planting a total of 7,500 trees around Malta and Gozo.

This was announced by Project Green CEO Steve Ellul who explained that this is equivalent to 9 football stadiums.

The newly appointed CEO explained that Project Green will be focusing on the implementation of 4 different categories of environmental projects; projects that will re-shape the islands.

Project Green will be focusing on national projects that will be initiated in the coming weeks after various consultation sessions. This will happen in conjunction with multiple projects of Green open spaces in the community that are planned to be delivered in the coming months.

This new project unveiled today, will also work on nationwide projects which will see the ‘greening’ of the village core through a reduction in car accessibility and pedestrianisation, as well as an €8.5m afforestation programme.

Whilst addressing a press conference, CEO Steve Ellul explained that Malta has the third largest rate of urbanisation in Europe, and that Project Green will be tackling this, and our population density, because “Maltese people deserve to have the same quality of life as people living in other areas around Europe.”

Steve Ellul emphasised that thanks to Project Green, the public will now have more open spaces, less than 10min walk from home. Ellul also reiterated that these projects will leave a better country, sustainable and visually more beautiful for us, and our children for years to come.

Designer plans to build this $8 billion turtle cruise ship

Designer plans to build this $8 billion turtle cruise ship

Modern cruise ships are already a feat in themselves, becoming more elaborate, luxurious and technologically developed as time goes on. 

Now, Saudi Arabia is planning on building this massive turtle-shaped cruise ship for a whopping $8 billion. The cruise ship, which is actually a floating city called Pangs will become the home to around 60,000 people. 

This means it will require all kinds of amenities, with Italian studio Lazzarini taking on the project. 

The turtle-ship will contain everything from a shopping mall to apartments to a rooftop garden. It is set to be a massive 610 metres wide and 550 metres long. 

65 apartments will be located in the feet and various places around the body. There will also be additional room for hotels so that tourists can enjoy the spectacle too. 

There will even be room for other ships to dock, but how can this massive contraption float? It all has to do with 30,000 floating cells as well as a steel basement. The ship will move very slowly at a speed of five knots (five miles an hour). 

The entire thing is set to take around 8 years to complete and you’d have to move to Saudi Arabia too!
