    hello BGP team,
    your initiative sparks some hope for all of us. Next step should be a gathering in each pubic park in Beirut, to make people aware that they do exist and that they need some maintenance. May I suggest an intervention every month? people need to be reminded constantly of what you do. GOOD LUCK!!!

    • Hello Leelouz,
      Thank you for your support and concern πŸ™‚
      and yes we are planning to gather and enjoy our time in existing public parks as well!
      and yes we need to remind people every now and then!!

    I attended because green spaces make me happy – sitting on grass makes me feel grounded, more serene and relaxed, even clear headed… I love interacting with people, and Saturday afternoon was exactly that – an afternoon of serenity and random interactions that made me feel… like a citizen? Yes! a citizen!! Every now and then i get these patriotic feelings of pride, but rarely of true citizenship. Green public spaces are the way to a healthier and more serene society, I have absolutely no doubt. So I say, get your hands off the honking device, put down your car keys, and come sit on the grass with us πŸ™‚

    Salut !

    I’m a French graduated in agriculture agro-ecology and agro-environment. I’ve started a specialisation about the Mediterranean context. In this framework I’m in Lebanon and in Beirut until October 20th, to do a study. If I can give you a part of my free time during this period in that crazy grey town, I will enjoy it a lot !
