The Word Nada Zarour President Of Green Party Lebanon About Leadership and Particiation Of Women In Political and Public Life , Word came within a workshop organized by the Sciences Po in Paris
Ladies and Gentlemen:
As president of the Green Party of Lebanon, and like all Lebanese citizens, we have big responsibilities upon our shoulders, and sizable challenges coming ahead that we must face. Our country is threatened by multiple crises and we should be ready to deal with them. We need a country where living conditions are fair and human rights are respected.
To be able to think of our nation as such… we should be able to dream beyond the norm. And to many people this dream is called the Green Party.
As a leader of a green political movement, our Party is a true alternative to all the mainstream ideologies that are engraved in our society. I feel a huge and serious sense of responsibility to be a steward of that hope, I am deeply committed to respecting the trust placed in me.
After only eleven years of existence, we have managed to achieve what much older parties only dream. we dared to differ. We differ because we are free of that fear that cripples our society and enslaves our fellow citizens… Fear of other denominations, We differ because our promises were made to be kept!
Looking back at the last five years, I feel proud that we were able to achieve a lot on policy, advocacy, and awareness levels.
