Relationships are crucial to everything we do. How we work with each other, with clients, builders and artisans, is what defines us."

Adib Dada will be speaking at this NASA and Globe Program-sponsored webinar, as a part of the Trees Around the World Student Research Campaign. 

"Join this special webinar as we hear from colleagues around the world about their experiences with Miyawaki Forests and planting trees. From the planting of over 200,000 trees and over 100 forests in India to restoring forests in countries such as Belgium, reversing the deterioration of the Beirut River by planting native trees, to how creating forests, with students in the United States, has helped students understand the importance of trees and forests to our ever-changing planet. We will also hear from author Hannah Lewis and about the Miyawaki forests."

EXHIBITIONS

On Dec 7th, we're launching the only publicly accessible LIVING pavilion associated with COP28, at Jameel Arts Center in Dubai. Designed by theOtherDada, Tarabot: Weaving a Living Forum creates an “interspecies habitat” hosting not only human events but native species as well - thereby elevating architecture as a restorative tool.

Join us for a breakfast reception to inaugurate this shared space in the center of the city, a place for all life forms to thrive.

Did you know that we're less than 2 week ahead of this years UN Climate Change Conference, #cop27 ? And did you know that there's a hiking challenge leading to it all the way from Scotland to Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt, where the conference takes place?

This challenge is called #Walk2Cop27 ! It comprises a series of virtual and in-person events and brings together governments, private as well as citizen initiatives! And guess what, it passes through Lebanon on *Thursday, Oct 27th*!

We're one out of several initiatives that will offer activities during this day.
In the spirit of "walking the talk", we would love to see you at our #beirutriverless project in #sinelfil this Thursday afternoon for our *walking tours*, one starting 4pm and another one at 5:30.

We will also be offering a really cool *bee hotel crafting workshop* with our well-known bamboo sticks we usually use for planting - 4:30-5:30pm!
