GREEN Beirut. How?
Everybody agrees that Beirut, the capital of Lebanon needs the green. Beirut Municipality Head, Bilal Hamad launched a campaign entitled“Beirut Bitjannen”, to increase green spaces in the capital, during a press conference held in Beirut.
Demands to make the capital green remain high. A “Picnic festival" will be held in thirteen locations, around Beirut, on June 16, 2012, to demand the reopening of Horsh Beirut to all.
This location has been closed to the public for more than twenty years, and only a few people are granted access to it.
Green projects are countless. Wassim Melki’s company has recently launched the BEIRUTOPIA project to save Beirut by planting a couple of trees on their rooftops.
This project, however still needs Beirut Municipality approval and the full collaboration companies and building owners in terms of implementation. Green efforts are on the rise. Whether that will happen, however, remains to be seen.
