40 The First Annual EcoSwitch Festival Was a Success

Our “First Annual EcoSwitch Festival for Eco-entrepreneurs in Lebanon” was a real success!! We welcomed over 65 online participants and 80 people at the networking event.

The Festival was organized by “Fondation Diane” and the “EcoSwitch Coalition” from November 23rd to 25th, 2021, with two online afternoon programs followed by a physical gathering of eco-entrepreneurs and Business Support Organisations at the Beirut Digital District in Beirut. We had a World Café with the Coalitions’ partners, knowledge-sharing discussions, expert panel sessions, speed dating and networking activities. One of the highlights of the event was a keynote speech by the Founder and President of “Fondation Diane” Mrs. Diana Fadel, along with inspirational talks from four successful Lebanese green entrepreneurs: Batoul Hakim from SAVVY ELEMENT, Marc Aoun from Compost Baladi SAL, Vanessa Zuabi from Mint Basil Market, and Ralph Sbeih from Plastclab.
