As part of Eco-Consulting's new CircularHub, tOD will be delivering a guided visit of the “Urban Afforestation Lebanon’s first Miyawaki Forest”. The workshop will focus on the process of creating and maintaining a dense native forest using the Japanese Miyawaki Method of afforestation.
As part of BeirutRiverLESS initiative, tOD partnered with Afforestt and SUGi, to gather 20+ participants and introduce them to the Japanese Miyawaki technique. Through an engaging hands-on workshop, they managed to plant the first native urban forest in Sin el Fil Lebanon.
Ecocity 2022’s scientific programme will feature a wide range of sessions, workshops, and other learning opportunities in an innovative virtual format, showcasing the latest research and developments in urban design and city transformation practices. You will have the chance to hear the world-leading experts in the field and discuss the latest trends.
Forests connect across territorial borders, watersheds, and ecosystems, and are not defined by cultural and political boundaries. Within 3 months, the forest transforms into a transition space between urban and natural ecosystems. Through theOtherForest’s afforestation projects, we are addressing the negative impacts of urbanization and lack of green public spaces in the cities of Lebanon.
Learn about restoring degraded urban ecosystems in Lebanon.
Through the Other Forest Initiative, Adib is firmly committed to the UN Decade of Action; engaged in rewilding the city and empowering communities to reclaim public space by planting native Miyawaki forests in urban landfills.
Adib will go through the environmental challenges and the solutions offered by planting dense native forests in cities around the world, in alignment with the UN SDG goals.
