In 1993, Green Line coordinated with 56 local grassroots NGOs from all over Lebanon and introduced the concept of bottom-to-up approach to work for the environment whereby NGOs contribute in the planning and implementation of such a strategy according to local needs. At that point, local need was mainly reforestation.
- Planting 5 tree nurseries with 5 NGO in different locations of Lebanon
- Planting more then 100,000 trees all over Lebanon
- Introduced the concept of bottom-to-up approach
- Introduced concept that the work for the environment is not restricted to officials and professionals
- Took a leading role in the reforestation issue on a national level
- Running, for Green Line, 3 nurseries in three different localities in Lebanon , with a total of 8000 seedlings a year. These include olives, cypress, pines, cedars and pistachio
