In a bid to raise the citizens’ environmental awareness, Environment Minister Fadi Jreissati participated with more than one hundred volunteers from AGBU’s Antranik Youth Association and World Vision International in a cleaning campaign of Zahle. The cleanup was held on August 3, 2019. It lasted 3 hours and was followed by an awareness campaign on the importance of keeping public spaces clean.
“We are facing a global environmental crisis which will catastrophically result in irreversible repercussions if our current climate action wasn’t augmented. However, we are proud to claim that we are taking leadership in combating climate change in Zahle, the heart of the Beqaa valley through campaigns that contribute to the wider picture of sustainability”, said Shant Chinchinian, the chairman of AGBU in Zahle.
