The Project entitled “Lebanese Youth as Messengers for Sustainability” fosters a culture of sustainability among the Lebanese children and young, their families and the local communities, in order to enhance a sustainable development in the country and sustainable relationships in the Mediterranean region.

 

MOBILISING THE LOCAL AUTHORITIES: Seminars on sustainable development and consumption addressing local administrators and civil society associations, October 2014:

On 22-23-24 October, 2014, three seminars were held in Beirut, Tripoli and in the Bekaa region to enhance common approaches towards sustainable development and consumptions.

The seminars have been organized with the technical support of ALMEE and MIO-ECSDE, and are directed to increase awareness of local public and private actors on their role and responsibilities towards sustainable development and consumption. These are considered crucial matters that concern life of people and of the whole community, and involve improvement of their living conditions. They call for a new cultural and ethical dimension of sustainable development that should pervade the whole society and encourage people to cooperate together towards the community empowerment. It is related to the concept of civic engagement encouraging individuals to recognize themselves as members of a larger social fabric and to establish reciprocal relationships to reach common goals. It also promotes the role of ESD as lifelong learning that builds civil capacity for community-based decision making, social tolerance, environmental stewardship and a good quality of life. It finally increases civil capacities to advance citizens’ social and economic rights contributing as such to the socio-economic development of the community.

These are the main components of a new “Culture and Ethics” of sustainable development, which can be considered the process of achieving human development in an inclusive and equitable manner.
