The TerraFirma Collective is a newly established NGO Platform which forms part of the “Empowering Maltese NGOs” project funded through the EEA Grants.
The project is being implemented by Flimkien għal Ambjent Aħjar (FAA), in partnership with Friends of the Earth Malta and the Malta Organic Agriculture Movement (MOAM) and began in 2014.
The Collective was launched on the 26th of March 2015 at the Fortifications Interpretation Centre in Valletta. Members of the Steering Committee, the project Coordinator as well as the minister Hon. Helena Dalli addressed members of the public, NGOs and the press during a conference which was followed by a reception.
JD Farrugia, the Project Manager, said: “There are many environmental problems NGOs in Malta are facing. TerraFirma Collective aims to bring these NGOs together for a stronger and unified position to address these challenges. TerraFirma however is not limited to environmental groups only as we encourage other organisations whose work is related to health, women and youth to join us.”
