Wicker Park started on a project to repopulate sea urchins, since this specie is disappearing from our sea, and the project is being studied and will be implemented with the marine biology center in Batroun, Lebanon Green Again and the ministry of the environment.
Wickerpark in itself is a cultural awareness festival, however we would also like to make a difference on a more tangible aspect by providing a music room for SOS in their new youth center in Sin El Fil (Y-Tech)
Wickerpark is organized by Soul Arch and in collaboration with Lebanon Green Again, it is under the patronage of the Ministry of the Environment.
