Feeling lost and don't know what all of this is about?

On Tuesday the 15th of October 2019, more than 140 blazes erupted in Lebanon from north to south. The forest fires were described as the worst to have hit the country in decades. The flames ravaged homes and acres of our beloved forests, forcing people to run for their lives with nothing but the clothes on their backs.

Brave firefighters battled massive wildfires in several areas in the country, before moderate rains in the evening brought them under control.

Who are we:

We are a community brought together through the world economic forum under the name "Global Shapers", our network consists of more than 400 city-based Hubs. These groups are developed and led by young leaders between the ages of 20 and 30 who want to come together and develop their leadership potential towards serving society. They aim to drive dialogue, action, and change.

As Beirut Global shapers we are 18 members from different backgrounds and with varying expertise. We are entrepreneurs, scientists, engineers, artists, consultants and more. What brings us together is our common passion to see a change in this country and more recently our immense heartbreak over the forest fires that ate away at our country. 

Our aim is to find ways to be a collective, we volunteer our time to think, create and foster connections and projects that bring us closer to a Lebanon we want to live in.
