Let Lebanon Breathe Again! #LebanonClimateAct

The new #LebanonClimateAct event -- which will take place in Lebanon at USJ on the 18th of June-- launched a campaign called "Let Lebanon Breathe Again". The promoting act of this campaign is as challenging as it looks: some may assume it's simple, but try holding your breath for one whole minute and you'll see that it's harder than it looks...

Post your own video of yourself trying to hold your breath for one minute. It's a fun act that you can do anywhere, anytime, and with friends or family to see who holds the longest! By making this act popular, you would be strengthening and contributing to the message we're trying to send: a cry for change in Lebanon. This action would be a call for the private sector to hold its breath and commit to take actions that stop polluting Lebanon.

So hold your breath one minute to let Lebanon
