What is Nerds 4 Lebanon?
What is Nerds 4 Lebanon? We are citizens and experts putting our skills, knowledge and resources to use in order to serve the community and better Lebanese governance. In the educative spirit of the Thawra and following the spontaneous initiative Finance4Lebanon, we create and curate quality content to spark productive conversations, grassroots initiatives and empowered civic engagement. Let’s help each other become better equipped and keep reclaiming Lebanon’s governance. This initiative is run in the spirit of collaboration, community building, open education, critical thinking and citizen empowerment.
Who can contribute?
Everyone! Anyone who wants to put their skills to use can tweet about topics they are passionate and knowledgeable about and include the hashtag #All4Lebanon. We are currently focusing on Public Health in light of the Coronavirus epidemic, and are following #HealthNerds content. But other areas are critical as well, for today and for our tomorrow:
- #AgriNerds or #Agri4Lebanon for (re)building our agriculture
- #EnvironmentNerds or #Env4Lebanon for safeguarding our air, water, forests and beaches
Other tags we are working on:
- #Law4Lebanon or #ConsumerProtectionNerds
- #CommunityBuildingNerds, #PublicAccountabilityNerds, anything that you want the community to learn and hear.
We are all ears!
We have no political or religious affiliations whatsoever and publish content entirely independently.
We are by citizens for citizens, for a better Lebanon.
