UN Partners with Al-Jadeed TV to Support 'Live Lebanon” Initiative

04 Feb 2013

Within the framework of “Live Lebanon” initiative by the UN Development Programme (UNDP) in partnership with Bank of Beirut and the Arab Countries (BBAC), UNDP in cooperation with the UN Information Centre in Beirut are organizing a press conference to launch a one-year partnership with Al-Jadeed TV and sign a memorandum of understating with the TV Chairman Tahseen Khayat. The press conference will take place on Monday 4 March 2013, at 12:00 PM, at the Movenpick Hotel (Mistral Room I), Beirut.  

Participants in the press conference will include Goodwill Ambassadors of the “Live Lebanon” initiative, namely: famous Lebanese singer Assi el Hellani, Mr. Ghaleb Farha, Mr. Fadi Salameh, and Mr. Fadi Zouki. This is in addition to a number of prominent media figures.  

The “Live Lebanon” initiative connects Lebanese individuals and associations around the world committed to local development projects in Lebanon. These projects are implemented in cooperation with the local communities, especially municipalities, to support community priorities related to youth, health, environment, and income generating activities. Through this partnership, Al-Jadeed TV will contribute to raising awareness about living conditions of local communities, strive to highlight the most pressing needs of deprived areas, and incite all Lebanese people to “Live Lebanon… Indeed” through contributions to the initiative.  

The UN Information Centre in Beirut kindly requests media representatives to provide appropriate coverage to this event given the key part media play in raising awareness about the crucial role of contributions from individuals and private businesses to sustainable development and improvement of local living conditions.
