6 The 1st Private Screening of Costa Brava Lebanon

“Fondation Diane” organized the 1st private screening of “Costa Brava, Lebanon” film by Mounia Akl, featuring Nadine Labaki and Saleh Bakri, at Grand Cinemas in ABC Dbayeh, to shed light once again on the waste crisis in Lebanon with the aim of presenting radical and long-term solutions. Having received positive feedback from prominent figures in the movie industry, the 14-award movie has also won the “Green El Gouna Star” award for best film under the environment category, and participated in local and international festivals.

In this context, “Fondation Diane” introduced five entrepreneurs and start-ups specialized in the waste management sector in Lebanon (solid waste, textile waste, electronic waste, organic and agricultural waste, and others), who brought forward remedies to this issue. Supported by the foundation, these start-ups are “Green Track” (headed by Khoder Eid), “Lebanon Waste Management” (headed by Pierre Baaklini), “FabricAid” (headed by Omar Itani), “Ecoserv” (headed by Gaby Kassab), and “Compost Baladi” (headed by Marc Aoun).

The overall purpose is to introduce to the audience the most effective green solutions to the waste problematic at the national level.
