Tree planting is said to have mind blowing potential to tackle the climate crisis.
Filling up cities with plants and trees cleans the air, reduces carbon, lowers temperatures, enhances biodiversity and supports human health.
A few months ago we had shared the fantastic initiative of a group of environmentalists, led by passionate and socially engaged architect Adib Dada @theotherdada, to restore Beirut River’s ecosystem, planting the first regional urban native forest on the banks of the Beirut River. @BeirutRiverLESS
In the last few days, in the midst of the Revolution, as part of their bigger reforestation initiative, they have been working on a guerrilla foresting project off Martyr’s Square.
We salute these initiatives that strive to create significant positive impact, improve the environment we live in and serve as a catalyst for change. @regeneratelebanon
Thank you to Adib Dada, his team and all the volunteers who are leading by example.
Now is the time to take action and make things happen.
