Consultancy services for Awareness and Media Campaign

 

  1. BACKGROUND

The Lebanese Environment Forum (LEF) in coordination with the Lebanon Eco Movement (LEM) are currently implementing a project entitled “Bahr Bala Plastic” under the “Lebanese civil society combating for a plastic free Mediterranean Sea” grant funded by the EU Delegation in Lebanon.

This project aims at financing innovative initiatives implemented by NGOs and start-ups (WP1), and raising awareness (WP3) and advocacy (WP2) campaigns, to reduce discharges of waste thrown in the sea, prevent additional harming to the environment and mitigate the economic damage to activities such as tourism and fisheries while tackling marine litter in Lebanon with a special focus on single-use plastic products and micro plastics, potential threat to both the environment and human health.

Under the Work Package WP3 and within an awareness campaign, LEF will sensitize beach touristic operators on the issue of marine plastic pollution and impact (including micro-plastics and single use plastics) to encourage sorting at the source and recycling plastics.

This work package is based on communications, awareness raising as well as behavior change on plastic usage.
