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.

  • JULY 13, 2024: A Great Day of Giving Back to the community initiated by @swiminitiative in collaboration with @taqasnacks  and its entire team. in Anfeh. Sadly, the consequences of plastic and solid waste were shockingly evident on the beautiful beachfront of Anfeh.

100 volunteers from @snogno.stcatherinegroup @lebaneseredcross @caritas_lebanon_youth @lebaneseamericanuniversity students, and a large crowd from SWIM’s community defied extreme heat and high humidity conditions to collect around 3m³ of waste:
5% glass
45% plastic and cans
20% paper and cardboard
30% other waste (clothes, shoes, etc.)

SWIM and Taqa are intensifying their efforts to raise awareness about global warming and climate change, the main reasons for extreme heat and harsh weather conditions, recommending #sorting and #recycling at the source to prevent waste from ending up in the sea.

Acquiring a sustainable mindset shouldn’t only be the concern of environmentalists; it should become the LIFESTYLE of every single individual living on planet Earth.
“We may be the first generation to face the climate crisis and the last one to be able to reverse it.”
Change is STILL possible, so let’s all unite from scientists to doctors to engineers and entrepreneurs in COLLECTIVE efforts to bring the wave of change to our Planet Earth. 
Thank you @municipalityofanfeh @sanitalb @xxlenergylb for your valuable support

We had an unforgettable triathlon event in Amchit, starting with cycling of 14 km to Kfarabida and back at 7:00 PM, followed by a 5 km run along Boulevard Amchit, and ending with an unparalleled 1.9 km NIGHT SWIM to Mina Amchit.

The sixth full moon of 2024, known as the “Strawberry Moon,” made a stunning appearance, signaling the change from Spring to Summer. A Magical Solstice and an unforgettable Lunar Standstill lit the hearts of the Swimmers with abundance of Joy and unlimited serenity.

  • A Day of Purpose: June 21 🌊

We had an incredible beach cleanup at Okaibé Beach, spreading environmental awareness and emphasizing the importance of protecting our environment and conserving marine life. We were joined by 43 students from CPF Collège Protestant Français Montana, 14 from Lycée Montaigne, and 6 from Grand Lycée Français, all participating as part of their civic engagement programs.

For two hours, we tirelessly worked to make our public spaces cleaner and safer. We collected around 3m³ of waste (50% plastic, 5% glass, 20% paper, 25% other).

A big shoutout to the Dubizzle team for their dedication to our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) efforts. Their support to the younger generation in raising awareness made a significant impact on our environment.

Thank you to the teaching staff and orientation centers at the schools for guiding the students in giving back to the community and making the world a better place. 🌍✨

  • 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. Together with SWIM initiative, they undertook a #cleanup at Amchit #beachfront on May 17. Twenty-five employees joined and picked litter from the shore to lead by example and demonstrate civic engagement. 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. 
Let’s keep protecting our oceans and making an impact! #BeachCleanup #SWIMinitiative #NovoNordisk #CSR #Amchit #WaveOfChange #EcoWarriors

  • 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.

Honored to join this community of runners pushing boundaries for diverse reasons – from overcoming cancer to embracing wellness and beyond and chasing improvement with every step and heartbeat. The energy was electric, and dopamine levels soared! 🏃‍♀️💨 ‘Running is not just exercise; it’s therapy for the mind, fuel for the soul, and a journey to discover your true potential.’ Grateful for this incredible journey and already counting down to the next one 🏃‍♀️💨 #RunningCommunity #WellnessJourney #runtorise #race #10km #milestone

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. #environment #beachfront #Kfarhebab #greencommunity #recycle #environmentalawareness #metrosuperstore #aquafina #taqabars

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. Together with SWIM initiative, they undertook a #cleanup at Amchit #beachfront on May 17. Twenty-five employees joined and picked litter from the shore to lead by example and demonstrate civic engagement. 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. Let’s keep protecting our oceans and making an impact! #BeachCleanup #SWIMinitiative #NovoNordisk #CSR #Amchit #WaveOfChange #EcoWarriors

As promised, we’ve successfully completed our three-discipline Challenge despite difficult windy weather conditions. On the afternoon of May 11th, athletes showed up with great determination to push their limits and support a GREAT CAUSE 🌟 Joining forces with SWIM Initiative and TAQA Snacks, we’re empowering @togetherlibeirut to supply hospitals with solar panels in exchange for vital healthcare services. Our journey in Amchit - 14.5km biking, 4km plogging, and 1.4km NIGHT swimming - symbolizes our commitment to sustainability and community well-being. Our Challenge extended to the next day as triathletes undertook a long RUN connecting Amchit to Batroun despite extreme heat from the Solar storm hitting Planet EARTH actually. With your support, we’ve exceeded our $1500 goal for Together LI BEIRUT non-profit organization which fosters a sustainable, equitable healthcare system and a stronger society in Lebanon by mobilizing the sports community.

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.
