The Garbage Crisis. Those three words have been on the lips of almost every Lebanese citizen since the summer of 2015. Like every problem, this one has its solution, perhaps too many solutions for one small country to handle.
On the 23rd of April 2016, Yvonne El Hajj showed the TEDxNDU audience how the Lebanese, as citizens, can put the pieces of this puzzle together, or rather 'segregate' them from one another.
Originally from Metn Lebanon, Yvonne holds a bachelor degree in chemistry and a masters in Industrial Technology. Her final Project was dedicated to “Ozone problems”, which is a key environmental issue. Yvonne has 9 years of experience in quality management and six years in renewable energy and recycling. She has been leading the Zero Waste ACT® project from the very beginning (2011) to date. This project aims at changing the way waste is managed throughout the country. Yvonne’s Motto: “No one is better than me; I am better than no one. Don’t follow the beaten path; go your own way and follow the trail.”
