River Action Now: Restoring the Beirut River
Adib Dada from the Other Dada discusses the efforts to use Miyawaki afforestation methods to reforest the Beirut River in Lebanon in order to save this biologically dead ecosystem. One of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world, Beirut has a millennial historical connection with its river, yet industrial activity, war and misgovernance have threatened the survival of this iconic river. How can urban rivers be restored and what kind of action can urban river guardians mobilise to address rivercide?
This event is part of the Guardians of the River online course, offered by Advaya and Guardians Worldwide.
