As Malta pushes forward into new and unprecedented years of innovation, it’s only right that one of the oldest traditions gets a bit of a revamp. Burial is fine, but many would like to see a different option. Here are a few suggestions.

1. Viking burial

There’s no better way to go than up in a giant ball of flame – and just imagine that with a stunning backdrop along the Maltese coastline. 

Sure, we need to work out the details to prevent the environmental disaster, but once that detail is figured out, we’re swimming… or sinking. Whatever.

2. Għargħar pods 

There’s already serious progress happening in the ‘become a tree after you die’ department, but why not adapt it for Malta. It’s about time we fought back against the ‘alien’ species of trees with some indigenous pods.

Buskett’s kinda creepy anyway – might as well turn it into a forest cemetery.

3. Grow a marine forest from your bones 

Cast your ashes in a concrete mold that encourages marine life to grow and join the endless forests of posidonia oceanica around the Maltese seas.

4. Leave this life with a bang 

Many Maltese people are very involved with the skill that goes into making our fireworks, and of course the historic tradition behind it. So why not give them the chance to go out with one last hurrah by mixing their ashes with the firework’s components and blasting them up into the sky.
