Green the Grey, a public street intervention in Beirut

Beirut used to be a beautiful city. Remember those days? Yeah, we don’t either.

All we see are the old houses being torn down to make space for new high-rises, public spaces being turned into parking lots, and the only existing parks are either being removed to make space for more ugly grey buildings, or closed off to the public.

We have the right to public spaces and greenery! But we are not getting it, so we have decided to TAKE IT!

On Saturday June 4th, on the weekend of World Environment Day, we will stage a public intervention by taking over a grey space and making it green!

JOIN US to enjoy a nice day in a “park”, bring your picnic baskets, bicycles, kites, kids, and let’s remind all those responsible that public green spaces are a RIGHT, NOT A PRIVILEGE!!

Time: Saturday June 4th 2011 at 4:30pm
Place: Sassine Square
