Martine Zaarour, founder, born and raised in the city of Byblos, I graduated with a Bachelor of Architecture with honors from the Lebanese American University in 2014. I started my career in Madrid, and after moving back to Beirut, along with my professional practices in architecture and design, I co-founded an NGO called ODDD that focuses on sustainable interventions on both the social and the urban scale, in addition to engaging in many workshops and activities on both the national and international level.
I was part of many youth workshops such as the ​UNESCO Youth Forum​ in Paris, ​The EYE, European Youth event i​ n Strasbourg, M​EDS workshop​ in its 9th edition in Byblos (July 2018), The​ Youth Leadership program​ by UNDP in its 4th edition, T​ he Arab states summit for the YLP Regional Forum ​in Tunisia,T​he International Youth Forum on Heritage and Creativity along the Silk Road​, China and The ECOSOC conference​ at the UN Assembly hall in New York. I was also part of many other local practices in Beirut with academic and governmental institutions such as the Lebanese American University, municipalities and NGOs. On the other hand, upon developing Jar Thuraya, I have just completed the Professional Fellows program by the US Department of state, during which I got the chance to be hosted by HUNGRY in Washington DC and pitch as winner project. However, my last encounter was with UNESCO and Arab World Heritage Young Professionals Forum working on the prevention on violent extremism in heritage site.
