We, Lebanese citizens, feel helpless in controlling our destiny. We contemplate our nation being depleted, acknowledge its depletion, and nevertheless, let go. There is a strategic, non-political solution aiming at uniting Lebanese citizens. It starts with Water: The Water of Lebanon, not just a commodity but our National Wealth.Vote for Blue Gold, a first in the History of Lebanon.

Lebanon has water–lots of it. It rains on average 8 billion m3 a year, the equivalent of 3 million Olympic swimming pools. In 2011 alone, more than 10 billion m3 of blue gold poured down upon us. Sadly, we only make use of 17% of available water. The problem is that we do not realize the wealth we have and we see water as a cheap commodity. Vote for Blue Gold, a first in the History of Lebanon

BLUE GOLD is an innovative, visionary 5-year plan that will increase the amount of available water to 500 million m3 as of 2020–only 7 years from now! By 2030, the amount will be 1 billion m3, equivalent to 1 billion USD of wealth for the entire country to share. Vote for Blue Gold, a first in the History of Lebanon.
