What's in a name?
The word 'Mem' comes from the thirteenth letter of the Semitic writing system, making it the predecessor of the modern day letter 'M'.
In old Phoenician, the word 'Mem' also represented water, which was of vital importance to the livelihood of their seafaring civilisation, and subsequently, towards the spreading of culture and language throughout the Mediterranean basin.
As water was so important to the Phoenicians, it is of equal importance to modern society, particularly to the Maltese Islands whose fresh groundwater sources are dwindling at an alarming rate.
Thus Memcon quite literally means 'Water Conservation'.
