LEBolution

Born from an idea during a 2013 WLCU Youth conference in Lebanon and first materialized in the summer of 2015, LEBolution is a world gathering of the Lebanese diaspora’s youth. For over a week LEBolutioners connect with their motherland through cultural, touristic, social and humanitarian activities around the entire country in the company of Lebanese descendants from all over the world!

Strongly supported by the Ministry of Tourism, a wide range of Lebanese municipalities, and a series of collaborators, LEBolutioners have been all around Lebanon. Together, we have visited the unforgettable ruins of Baalbek, millenary Byblos, the ruins in Tyre and enjoyed lunch by the Berdawni river in Zahle. We have seen the natural beauty of Taanayel, Jeita Grotto, and the iconic Cedar Reserve – a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We have walked the souqs in Saida and Tripoli…we have visited Lebanon! Local tourism has also been a part of the program with visits to the beautiful traditional village of Douma, participation in a festival in Tartij, and a moonlit walk in Dhour Shweir!

The trip has also included dabke workshops, beach parties in Jiyeh, blood donation campaigns, a symbolic Day of Peace, and integration activities with children of the martyrs of the Lebanese Army. And during the cultural exchange closing dinner, participants from each country share a piece of their own culture to close off a unique experience visiting home!
