Act!ve Lebanon was originally created after the 17th of october 2019 lebanese revolution where the protesters demanded a profound transformation, more than 7 protests between 2019 and 2020 in solidarity with the lebanese revolution was held in Oslo in front of Stortinget and other protests was held abroad. We, the diaspora that lives in Norway and Lebanese and Norwegian activists could not but strenghen our unity and come together with fruitful and concrete ideas. The time has come to set them up since Lebanon is fighting off a pandemic, political unrest, an unprecedent economic crisis and famine all at the same time:
A corrupted elite, dysfunctional natuonal institustions, constant electroral fraud,inadequate excess to the basic needs like electricity and water, absence of basic services like trash renoval, high rates of unemployment, 3rd highest inflation rate in the world, several suicide cases as poverty and hunger mounts, violence by the lebanese security forces against protesters, increasingly oppression of the freedom of speech, a threatened nature, all these together has brought us to establish this organization.

Active Lebanon is politically and religiously indepandent and includes activists with diversed backgrounds and cultures. We mainly work to mainstream five essential vlaues:
