GUERILLA AFFORESTATION
Planting Lebanese Native species in the city center
Challenge: How can we positively reclaim urban space?
TypePublic
Area6 planters of 1 sqm each = 30 Trees and Shrubs
LocationLebanon
StatusPlanted in November 2019

With the help of volunteers, we have begun doing “guerrilla afforestation” plantings in the area around Martyrs’ Square. The site was chosen because of its proximity to the revolution site, as an active of positive protest to reclaim our public spaces.

 

Volunteers and protestors are taking care of the watering and maintenance of the forest, further strengthening the peaceful, communal and positive impacts of the revolution. Our tiny native forests also provide a counterpoint to the typical method of favoring exotic [water and chemical-intensive] landscaping in Beirut’s urban core.
