what is daskara

DASKARA is a unique digital platform in Lebanon for those who seek to explore, enjoy, and protect both Lebanon’s nature and culture. The platform has been developed with the contribution of crowd-sourcing efforts from Lebanese villages’ locals and experts.

DASKARA – Arabic for “authentic village” – is a nature and heritage exploration platform revolving around conscious participation and involvement.

DASKARA aims at bridging the gap in the Lebanese experience by linking the missing dots, ultimately revitalizing a medley of towns and villages which offer unique and exceptional cultural and natural assets.

DASKARA allows users to participate in linking the missing dots by gathering, sharing, and accessing their local knowledge and distinctive experiences on the platform. With the contribution of nature and culture related experts, the Daskara team gives way for a much needed effort to conserve and sustain our region, connecting the past, present and future.
