EQUAL - A Reuse Initiative in Malta

The project for the restoration of used furniture and other materials in Malta amalgamated the environmental concern with a social context. People at risk of social exclusion received training in furniture renovation and in recycled creative crafts until they were able to carry out this activity independently. The idea was to assist people who encountered difficulty with securing employment given their particular personal circumstances. At the same time, this project extended the lifetime of furniture and other unwanted material which would otherwise have been disposed of.

    Unfortunately we do not have a website or publication specifically dedicated for this project. You may however ask for any additional information which might not appear in the fact sheet.
