After the interruption of the 7th Youth Leadership Program (YLP) due to COVID-19 confinement measures, the Lebanon Renaissance Foundation’s (LRF) education initiative resumed its timely sessions.

President of CREAL and longtime activist in the rural economy Dr. Riad Saade shared with the participants a comprehensive reading and visual presentation of the agricultural sector in Lebanon in the light of the present constraint, as well as conditions enabling growth opportunities.

In turn, anti-corruption activist and former MP Ghassan Moukheiber presented his session entitled “Defining, Fighting and Preventing Corruption in Lebanon.”
