We dream of a greener Beirut

Enjoy your green space

"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."

  2. stunning stuff. it's a shame that so many people in this country fail to appreciate the permanent, irrecoverable and tremendous loss that the lebanese are doing to their environment. we need a lebanese edward abbey.

    keep it up. i would love to join hands on your next intervention.

  11. I too think this is an excellent idea, and wonderful creative work by you both..but my question to you is, how would this be achieved..would it have to be achieved by way of destructing current buildings to allow for more green space? I wonder why urban planning adopted this structure to begin with!

    No wonder everyone is alway so eager to escape Beirut on weekends..
