About the innovation

What is Lebanon Organisation for Green Schools (LOGS)?

Lebanese organization for Green Schools (LOGS) is a non-political organization, non-sectarian, independent incorporated Lebanese NGO, based in Beirut.

We believe conducting change through education is the best way to make a difference. School is the natural and ideal place to learn, raise environmental awareness, build habits and citizenship values. Students make up one quarter of the entire Lebanese population, they spend fifteen years of their lives at school and so we believe we can achieve a lot during this period. Education for sustainable development enables the whole school to develop ethical actions that values people and nature. Thes ethics form the decision making process for every day actions.

LOGS is therefore a combination of humanity, education, environment and most importantly seeds for a better tomorrow.

LOGS uses a top down approach: starting with training administrators & staff on green practices, covering the major departments such as languages, mathematics, sciences and humanities. We assist schools to establish their own environmental student-led clubs to address specific issues typical of their school.  The school building itself is turned into an action project.

We believe that the children of Lebanon can make a change and build a better future.
