Water Innovation Lab Lebanon 2020, with its focus on the Litani River, completed the 3rd week of 10 in action using its new virtual format adapted to the unprecedented circumstances presented by COVID-19. The results and energy have been amazing to date.

In a gender shift to be proud of, 60% women and 40% men, aged 18-30 years, included very diverse backgrounds: engineering, social sciences, sciences, business, and more. This year's events saw representation from all academic institutions in Lebanon, and some from private companies and public organizations; all of whom gathered to develop solutions to the Litani River challenges.

More than 25 experts have joined from 20 organizations, including AUB and FAFS. Dr. Rabi Mohtar, Dr. Roula Bachour, Dr. Nadim Farajallah, and Dr. Mirella Aoun, moderated by a team of 4 facilitators and 8 WIL alumni.
