The official website of Dawra Madwarna (DM), a network of professionals from different backgrounds whose vision is to drive the transformation of urban open spaces in Malta, has just been launched. The site forms an integral part of the organisation’s strategy to raise awareness and create an online database that is accessible to the public and stakeholders alike. Dawra Madwarna is a non-profit organisation currently in the process of being registered as an association.

Open spaces are an important part of urban life as they create a sense of community and enrich the social environment. If planned and designed well, they have the potential to provide many benefits. The organisation’s aim is to raise awareness about these benefits and to create a platform to initiate positive discourse about the different ways in which these can be achieved.

The newly launched website archives these activities and their outcomes into one location, to create a repository and source of inspiration. It also contains a toolkit with links to online resources, published literature and well-known classics as a means of providing easy access to knowledge relating to urban planning, placemaking, green infrastructure, public space design and more.

The ‘get inspired’ section is a database of local projects, which can be visionary in nature, student works or case studies of implemented projects that have the potential for positive change. The idea is to support and showcase the act of being proactive. DM hopes to inspire, connect and empower people to visualise Malta’s open spaces as greener and more pedestrian-accessible versions of what exists today, turning leftover urban space into places for community engagement.

If you think you have an idea or project that could be part of the database, submit it through the form found on the website www.dawramadwarna.org.
