Female Lebanese students at World Global Biodiversity Forum


Around 8 female high school students from College Notre Dame de Jamhour will attend the World Biodiversity Forum to be held in Switzerland from February 23 to 28. To recall, these students have worked for 5 months on a research on biomimicry and how to adapt it to Lebanon’s biosphere. The study was conducted under the supervision of Born Global Foundation general executive who facilitated students’ communication with the Forum’s curators. In their project, “Beirut Biomimics”, the 8 students applied the concept of biomimicry to create new biological products bound to reduce negative human impact on nature. Speaking to An Nahar, they boasted that, aided with hope to achieve their goal from the forum, they wish their nationals develop greater environmental awareness and bring Lebanon to join the countries concerned with the emerging natural changes and environmental challenges facing the world.
