Beirut Green Project is a dream; it’s a voice being raised to say that we love green spaces, and that we have the right to have these spaces in our city.
Beirut Green Project is a reaction to the uncontrolled sprawl of cement and buildings eating up our city. We believe in different modes of urban planning that take into account our basic human right to have access to more green spaces.
It all started in 2010, on World Environment Day, with a very impulsive street intervention, which aimed to cleverly point out how ridiculously little green there is in Beirut.
In 2011, we decided to carry on with larger interventions and projects, which not only raise awareness but also aim to change this situation. We formed a small collective of individuals who are frustrated, motivated, and energetic enough to demand more. With all the love and support we have gathered, we are hopeful that someday soon, our dream will become a reality.
This blog is a space where we can all share ideas on how to green our grey city, and where we can share our interventions, events, plans and thoughts on how, together, we can make Beirut a greener place to be.
