American Univesity of Beirut



We are a com​​munity born movement ​​​

​Using science, media, and de​​​​ep collaboration to make transformation happen​

​​​Our Reason

​​We live in the most worrying and consequential times in human history. This is not an exaggeration. Environmental breakdown is threatening the basis of civilized society. Efforts by government, industry, development aid, and mainstream academia are not enough. All are too embedded in the models that got us into this mess.​​

We created the Environment Academy as a pleading response for an honest alternative. It's time to rethink who creates solutions, how science and knowledge is used, and how everyone is engaged. We need transformation. And we believe that visionary residents in hard hit communities have what it takes to make it happen. 

Our Mission

We deeply engage communities most impacted by environmental breakdown with interdisciplinary experts,  Lebanese diaspora, and the general public in a solution making process. We use collaborative science, mentorship, constant interaction, and widely popular media to back groups of community members in taking on obstructions to a healthy, productive, and sustainable life for all.​

​Our Vision​​​

We empower communities most affected by environmental breakdown to choose their own goals, strategies, and projects for driving systematic solutions. We believe transformational change is possible and it starts locally with our air, water, and life.
