We are a group of NATURE LOVERS who acknowledge that the sea is our most valuable asset and an important resource of life, accessible to all. For this purpose, we created SWIM Lebanon which stands for Sustainable Waste Intercity Marathon.
SWIM engages communities all over Lebanon for a combined open water swimming and waste collection initiatives to create a chain reaction of good habits by building new behaviors that lead to protecting our sea from pollution and keeping our environment clean.
We are supported by professional swimmers, event managers, influencers, environmentalists, activists, educators, lecturers, various NGOs, businesses and designers who help us achieve our GREEN LANE objectives.

● Promote environmental awareness by educating ourselves and sensitizing people to sustainable patterns and practices.

● Inspire others to be actively involved in improving the community life by participating in community clean ups and planning.

Collaborate with other NGOs  on educational programs and environmental campaigns to inculcate regenerative thinking and create a behavioral change

● Cooperate with eco-friendly industries to encourage green tourism development and beautifying projects.

● Educate about who and what is causing litter pile ups and mobilize communities , governments & municipalities to prevent future littering behavior

● Induce the 3 Rs Rules ,  Reduce , Re-UseRecycle

● Influence people’s mindset to reduce pollution and amounts of waste that end up in landfills or incinerators.

● Promulgate the importance of Biodiversity preservation and ecosystem restoration , Key resources for survival & prosperity

We believe we can achieve Clean Lebanese Sea and coastline through collective efforts and individual responsibility.
By engaging individuals and communities in taking ACTIONS, We can reach a GREENER Lebanon, sustaining the future of its inhabitants.  

Our Mission is to create a network of people, sharing the Same Values, working together to generate a snowball effect of Behavioral Changes for the protection and the conservation of our Ecosystem through environmental projects, education and activities.

  • SAT, May 18- SWIM Initiative joined forces with the Lady of Peace Parish at Kfarhebab and the Environmental Committee of the region, for an inspiring #cleanup at the Bay of Jounieh. Our mission was essentially to raise awareness and inspire the Kfarhebab community to recycle at the source, reducing our carbon footprint and fostering a greener city. At 8:30 am, 50 passionate volunteers came together, collecting 52 large bags of waste that were then sent to Drop Off Recycling Company.
A heartfelt thank you to Metro Superstore for sponsoring the event, and to Sanita, Aquafina, and Taqa bars for providing the essential supplies. Together, we’re making strides towards environmentally more conscious societies and securing a sustainable future for our country and generations to come.

  • Novo Nordisk’s commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) highlights the profound impact businesses can have on society and the environment. 
As a global leader in healthcare, particularly in diabetes care, Novo Nordisk has integrated #csr into the core of its operations, ensuring that their business practices contribute positively to the world.

In just 2 hours, 50 large trash bags were filled with litter that should never have been present if everyone sorted their trash at the source. To mark the day, a #mural titled “The Wave of Change” was painted by artist @mohamad_abrashh symbolizing the transformative impact of collective efforts in promoting health, sustainability, and social responsibility. The mural serves as a vibrant reminder of the power of community and the positive changes that can be achieved when organizations like @novonordisk commit to making a difference. The waste was collected by @amchitmunicipality.

  • Pilgrimage walk of nonstop 17 km that commenced at 5 am to Deir Mar Maroun Annaya was truly a transformative experience. As we embarked on this journey, we were immediately immersed in the beauty of nature, surrounded by the springy, blooming landscapes of Mother Earth. It was a breathtaking sight to witness how the uncultivated wilderness effortlessly rejuvenated itself, teeming with life from the gentle whispers of the wind to the graceful flight of birds, the soothing flow of water, the bustling activity of insects, and the vibrant presence of butterflies and bees.
Our ascent was not merely a physical journey but a spiritual one. After the divine mass, we continued to the Ermitage where Mar Charbel spent his life. With each step, we felt a profound connection to the earth, realizing our interconnectedness with the natural world and its Creator. In this serene setting, we found solace and inspiration, and we were moved to dedicate our pilgrimage to peace for the world.
It was a beautiful day to culminate with Sophie’s birthday, who embraced her half-century milestone. Celebrating amidst such natural beauty and spiritual resonance added an extra layer of meaning and joy to the occasion.

  • It’s so rewarding to see @lebamericanuni  Business students taking part in the SWIM initiative for #beach #cleanup at Amchit boulevard as part of their #civic #engagement duties. Their dedication and effort to clean up the beach despite the frustration of seeing it littered again, highlight the importance of environmental stewardship. Recycling plays a crucial role in reducing the amount of plastic waste that ends up in the sea, helping to protect marine life and ecosystems. Collecting 2 cubic meters of waste is a significant achievement, and the collaboration with @amchitmunicipality to sort and dispose of the waste responsibly is essential for effective waste management. Thank you LAU Business students for your impactful work towards a cleaner and healthier environment. You are indeed the FUTURE GUARDIANS of our planet.

In the frame of Corporate Social Involvement in raising environmental awareness and embracing healthy business strategies, SWIM proudly presents our Earth Day event, in collaboration with @maliagroupcareers @ipt_group and @we.are.cxg held on April 290, in the picturesque Amchit bay. Joined by independent volunteers, @lebaneseamericanuniversity students, moms with their children, and the Lebanese Red Cross, we embarked on a mission to clean up the beach that we gladly call the Hidden Gem of Amchit. Witnessing the initial shock of the crowd as they faced the vast plastic pollution, turned into relief and joy after just 45 minutes of collective efforts ( 400 bags , 14m3, 400kg ), restoring the earth and its ecosystem. This year’s EARTH DAY theme, ‘Earth vs. Planet,’ eloquently highlighted the perils of plastic pollution on marine life and the crucial importance of ocean preservation. We extend heartfelt thanks to our generous sponsors, @aquafinalebanon @taqasnacks @ipt_group @sanitalb for providing water, snacks, fresh juices and trash bags. Special recognition goes to @theshiftconsultancy @mirnachidiacsaba @eleena.tchilinguirian @elsazgheib and the entire SWIM community for their invaluable support in making this event a success. #earthday2024 #cleanup #beachcleanups #environmentart #awareness #pollution #ecosystem #changeyourhabits #changeyourmindset #recycle #recycleatsource #marineconservation #volunteer #csr #corporatesocialresponsibility

Pilgrimage walk of nonstop 17 km that commenced at 5 am to Deir Mar Maroun Annaya was truly a transformative experience. As we embarked on this journey, we were immediately immersed in the beauty of nature, surrounded by the springy, blooming landscapes of Mother Earth. It was a breathtaking sight to witness how the uncultivated wilderness effortlessly rejuvenated itself, teeming with life from the gentle whispers of the wind to the graceful flight of birds, the soothing flow of water, the bustling activity of insects, and the vibrant presence of butterflies and bees. Our ascent was not merely a physical journey but a spiritual one. After the divine mass, we continued to the Ermitage where Mar Charbel spent his life. With each step, we felt a profound connection to the earth, realizing our interconnectedness with the natural world and its Creator. In this serene setting, we found solace and inspiration, and we were moved to dedicate our pilgrimage to peace for the world. It was a beautiful day to culminate with Sophie’s birthday, who embraced her half-century milestone. Celebrating amidst such natural beauty and spiritual resonance added an extra layer of meaning and joy to the occasion.

It’s so rewarding to see @lebamericanuni Business students taking part in the SWIM initiative for #beach #cleanup at Amchit boulevard as part of their #civic #engagement duties. Their dedication and effort to clean up the beach despite the frustration of seeing it littered again, highlight the importance of environmental stewardship. Recycling plays a crucial role in reducing the amount of plastic waste that ends up in the sea, helping to protect marine life and ecosystems. Collecting 2 cubic meters of waste is a significant achievement, and the collaboration with @amchitmunicipality to sort and dispose of the waste responsibly is essential for effective waste management. Thank you LAU Business students for your impactful work towards a cleaner and healthier environment. You are indeed the FUTURE GUARDIANS of our planet. #environment #beachfront #ecosystems #cleanup #keepitclean #civicengagement #awareness #recycling #itsyoursea #بحرك_الك

February 10 marked a revolutionary day at Beirut Waterfront Zeituna Bay as we rallied to spread environmental awareness on World Cancer Day. We underscored the critical importance of maintaining cleanliness in our environment and public spaces to mitigate the spread of cancerous diseases, as there exists a direct correlation between air and water pollution and food contamination. In partnership with @chanceassociation presided by @dr.roula.farah, SWIM INITIATIVE led the charge to emphasize the significance of nature preservation. A remarkable 285 volunteers, including those from various NGOs and schools such as @acsbeirut @cpfofficial @eastwoodcollegek @mekhitaristschool_rawda @lebaneseredcross @caritas_lebanon_youth @caritas_lebanon @intertectra Construction Company, Foreign entities and SWIM’s dedicated volunteers, united to collect an impressive 8 cubic meters of waste in just 2 hours. Ramco workers admirably handled 2 truckloads of waste disposal. We extend our heartfelt appreciation to all individuals fighting cancer and to those who have triumphed over the disease. This successful event was made possible through the unwavering dedication of our volunteers and the generous support of @sanitalb @aquafinalebanon and @taqasnacks
