"Green your Culture Festival"

Coverage by NOW Lebanon news on the "Green your Culture Festival" in Beirut, Lebanon:

" Sanayeh Garden in central Beirut smelled like spray paint and hummed like a bee hive under the early summer sun on May 14. A few hundred people decided to go green and have fun on a sunny Saturday afternoon at the 4-hour Green your Culture Festival, held to mark the launch of the much-awaited European Union cluster of cultural centers in Lebanon, the EU National Institute of Culture.

“Ecology is an important theme in the European culture, and we wanted to start our activity in Lebanon by promoting this theme, which is part of the European policy,” EUNIC President Dan Stoenescu told NOW Extra.

The festival, organized in cooperation with Lebanese environmental NGO IndyAct and the EU Delegation in Lebanon, brought together artists from across Europe and Lebanon in an event designed to raise awareness on environmental protection. The main attractions were the 30-meter-long wall where Lebanese, German and British graffiti artists depicted climate change using eco-paint; and the stage where actors and musicians also tried to send the green-your-culture message to young Lebanese.

“We need the Arabs and Lebanese to start caring about the environment in their day-to-day life and culture,” said IndyACT’s Ali Fakhri. “Environmental aspects such as climate change have the greatest influence on our needs – including food – on our health and economy,” he added."
