On The Move is going to Lebanon!

The exhibition is all packed and ready to go to… Lebanon!

We are very happy to announce that from the 10th – 14th of December the exhibition will be up in the Cultural Center of Byblos!

On The Move is se to make its fourth stop in Byblos Cultural Center from 10th – 14th December 2014, in collaboration with the Municipality of Byblos, funded by the European Union (EU). With more than 50,000 visitors in the last five months, and after successful tours in Tunisia, Paris and Geneva, On The Move promises to reach a large Lebanese and international audience in the historic city of Byblos.

The exhibition will include an overview of environmental, agricultural and educational projects implemented by SPNL in regions of Lebanon in order to increase awareness about the important areas for birds and biodiversity, in addition to the identification of endangered species and ecosystems through educational activities, funded by the Critical Ecosystem Partnership Fund (CEPF).

The exhibition will also display handicrafts linked to Lebanese Heritage made by women from the Hima areas in Lebanon. Carpet weaving was one of the skills specific to Al-Fakiha that was highlighted with the aim of economic empowerment and achieving gender equality. Women’s empowerment is part of the project titled “Promoting Hima Women Empowerment for Conservation and Livelihood” funded by UN Women Fund for Gender Equality.
