Phase 1 of Beirut's RIVERLESS Forest turned 3 and is now fully self-sufficient!

 

Beirut's RIVERLESS Forest stands as a symbol of hope and resilience as well as a memorial of what was once Beirut's beautiful river. The part already planted will be opened as a public park in only about 2 years time. Another 10.000 sqm are stil waiting for funding and planting.

After a whole revolution and a pandemic, lots of sweat and care, as well as over 66,320$ of generous funding, the first parts of Beirut's RiverLESS Forest are now fully self-sufficient: They need neither maintenance nor watering. We celebrated this milestone with plentiful activities - have a look at how it went in our report!

Did you know that we're less than 2 week ahead of this years UN Climate Change Conference, #cop27 ? And did you know that there's a hiking challenge leading to it all the way from Scotland to Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt, where the conference takes place?

This challenge is called #Walk2Cop27 ! It comprises a series of virtual and in-person events and brings together governments, private as well as citizen initiatives! And guess what, it passes through Lebanon on *Thursday, Oct 27th*!

We're one out of several initiatives that will offer activities during this day.
In the spirit of "walking the talk", we would love to see you at our #beirutriverless project in #sinelfil this Thursday afternoon for our *walking tours*, one starting 4pm and another one at 5:30.

We will also be offering a really cool *bee hotel crafting workshop* with our well-known bamboo sticks we usually use for planting - 4:30-5:30pm!
