Enjoy your green space

One of the things i feel most frustrated about in Beirut is the lack of green spaces. The urban planning of the city includes very little accommodation of public green spaces where you can relax and chill.
I especially felt this lack after living in Paris for a while. So when the time came, Nadine Feghaly and I collaborated on this public intervention to express our disagreement with the lack of the "urban-green" !


The public intervention was up since 6am this morning, on friday june 4th 2010, for World's Environment Day. In 9 spots around Beirut, the installations shout our call for change.

Check it out for yourself ! Here's a map of the 9 spots in Beirut.

  3. well done. I strongly support this. For a country that calls itself "green lebanon" and uses a tree as a symbol representing its indentity on its flag and its national carrier, it is appalling that it has turned into a heap of concrete. this small but very important statement is one of many steps that people should undertake in order to create awareness and provide the right impetus for change.
