The cultural heritage of Lebanon is a rich and diverse mosaic of cultural and creative expressions. Culture is also an important resource for economic growth and job creation. It offers the potential to revitalise urban and rural areas and promote sustainable tourism.
For many years, the European Union has supported cultural activities in Lebanon and made available learning initiatives and exchange programmes, by funding mobility, co-creation, and co-production activities. We strongly believe that culture can bring innovative solutions and economic benefits.
At this challenging time, we continue to stand with Lebanon in coping with the COVID-19 and socio-economic crises. To promote Lebanon’s amazing potential as a tourism destination and local economic activity in various sectors at this difficult time, and considering that many people have limited travel options for their holidays this summer due to the economic situation and worldwide travel restrictions, we have teamed up with L’Agenda Culturel and produced three maps:
We hope many Lebanese and visitors to Lebanon will find these maps useful and they will inspire many to discover and appreciate this beautiful country even more. Most importantly, we hope this donation will give more visibility and help support many local businesses.
