Beirut’s RiverLESS Forest aims to restore the native forest ecosystem near the city’s most polluted river. The Miyawaki afforestation method we use is scientifically proven to be the best method for cities to combat climate change, by sequestering 30x more CO2 & pollution, reducing temperatures and bringing 100x more biodiversity into the city compared to conventional landscaping. Our initiative engages the public in every phase of the forest-making process, from site excavation to planting & maintenance until the forest becomes completely self-sustaining within 3 years. Our urban forest becomes a shared habitat for humans and other organisms
