Beirut RiverLESS at PechaKucha Night in Cleveland

On June 20th, 2019, we presented “Beirut RiverLESS” in Cleveland, Ohio during PechaKucha Night: Waterways, a groundbreaking event bringing presenters from around the world to share diverse perspectives on how communities can re-think their relationship with the world’s most important resource.

The event took place 50 years after the last time industrial pollution caused the Cuyahoga River to catch fire, triggering a national reckoning on water policy which in turn led to the establishment of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

With an audience of more than 2000, Adib shared the story of Beirut River’s importance, death and challenges. He talked about his efforts to re-wild the city in order to bring the river’s ecosystem services back, through a set of environmental and community interventions, including the most recent native urban forests alongside the river.
