Millennium Fellowship Project: Urban Intervention
Today, Lebanese cities suffer from lack of resources, services, and access. Urban Intervention is a project led by university students that would reassess the current planning policies, identify the main challenges facing urban agglomerations, and present alternative innovative solutions in response. The group of students from diverse academic backgrounds would receive guidance from experts in the fields in order to create a campaign that brings awareness to the importance of sustainable city planning.
