Weekdays
Part time (10-30 hrs/wk)

About the project:

Regenerate Lebanon, a program of the NGO Recycle Lebanon, is a platform for conscious system change with a mission to strengthen the circular economy to promote sustainable development solutions. The online site will aggregate dispersed data about interconnected social and environmental issues. In doing so, the platform will facilitate access to information and then integrate opportunities for action, visualize data in unique ways for reuse, and incentivize users to scale game-changing solutions by means of interconnectivity across sectors and encourage long-term nature-based solutions.

The main goals of the site are: 

  • To access information regarding up-to-date socio-environmental problems and local solutions 
  • To provide a platform which directly connects sectors with beneficiaries to solve socio-economic issues while building connections between stakeholders that will allow people to collaboratively develop innovative social solutions online and offline
  • To aid in an industrial transition towards regenerative systems and a circular economy (i.e. reducing single use plastic use and disposal, designing non-recyclable materials out of production)                      
  • To promote actions tied to sustainable development goals that will slow climate change and regenerate natural resources
