Impact Lebanon has been collaborating with AUB Nature Conservation Center
since January 2020 on a very exciting environmental initiative - The Environment Academy. This initiative aims to work with local community teams in a co-creation process for solutions to pressing environmental problems including solid waste mismanagement, water pollution, air pollution, and the loss of green spaces.
Since then, we have formed an international team of mentors and supporters with diverse expertise. These volunteers have reviewed the proposals received by the local community teams and are now mentoring them in developing and implementing a process for feasible solutions to the pressing environmental problem in their areas.
Now that 10 local community teams have qualified and are undergoing mentorship, we are hosting a series of two webinars, each introducing 5 teams and their respective mentors to give a glimpse into the community born projects they are gradually bringing to life. The webinars will create an opportunity for constructive exchange and support between mentors, teams, and the broader community.
