Before Lebanon's "October Revolution" began, Recycle Lebanon founder Joslin Kehdy had been searching for a space to launch a pilot project of a model sustainable community.The Regenerate Lebanon space, set up in a complex of tents in Martyrs' Square, includes a recycling and garbage sorting area, a volunteer-run zero-waste kitchen where volunteers prepare meals for the protesters using produce donated by supermarkets that would have otherwise thrown it away, a co-working space with Wi-Fi and charging stations, and spaces for meetings and projects -- all powered by solar panels bolted to the pavement.Like Kehdy, he said the idea of the space was to create a model of the kind of society people want to see in Lebanon.
