Introduction

What is Lebanon Organisation for Green Schools (LOGS)?

“Lebanese organization for Green Schools” LOGS is an organization that came to existence in July 2015. It is a non-political, non-sectarian, independent incorporated Lebanese NGO, based in Beirut.

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. We can achieve a lot during this period. Education for sustainable development enables the students and school to develop ethics that value people and nature by making it a fundamental part of its daily life.

Based on the above, a group of enthusiasts decided to found an organization that would contribute in fulfilling this need. This is how the Lebanese Organization For Green Schools (LOGS), came into being.

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

The scope of the work undertaken 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 clubs to address specifics of their entourage. We conduct awareness sessions to the students. Furthermore, LOGS turns the school building itself into a living proof of concept and a learning tool.

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