The workshop was held in Hima Byblos, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, combined with children from Hima Anjar, also a UNESCO WHS, as part of linking and connecting the two Himas and stressing on sharing experiences and knowledge between the two youth communities under SPNL’s SNOW program, School with No Walls. SNOW aims to raise awareness about the Hima IBAs and KBA, species and ecosystems, and cultural practices linked to nature and learning through fun.
