How to guide Beirut to become a Fab City?

I am a qualified architect with 2 year’s experience. I graduated with a Masters in City and Technology, specialized in smart cities from IAAC in Barcelona.
After working on several megaprojects in the MENA region in collaboration with large design firms like AICOM and Zaha Hadid architects, I would like to broaden my international professional experience and contribute to cutting-edge projects. I am therefore seeking the Fab City Summit in Paris to talk about our topic.

I am now preparing a teaching program to introduce the students to the new recycling and ecological era by workshops and lectures for Académie Libanaise des Beaux-Arts (ALBA) for the Architecture/ Interior architecture/ Urbanism program. Our laboratory site will be Lebanon.

In the last 3 years, there was a national garbage problem. A shame for such a historical ancient and wonderful country. Since it is now in a great need of this, it is the perfect timing for this program: Beirut City project. How to transform it as a Smart Recycling City.
My aim is to educate the new generation to think differently, to make the city locally productive, globally connected and self-sufficient. The Goals are going to be transparency and awareness. Our Focuses are going to be the technology and Data/Information.

Looking forward to meeting everyone and exchanging experiences !
