Pierre Daher (Finalist)
2009
Lebanon

In 2008, Pierre served as Minister of the Environment in Lebanon’s Youth Shadow Government. In that role, he conceived of “Craft”, a youth-led initiative that not only encourages companies to adopt a paper recycling program, but provides the training and tools to do so. National in scope, the project was launched in partnership with the private sector (e.g., Thomson Reuters, Byblos Bank) and civil society organizations (e.g., JCI Lebanon, Indyact). Central to its philosophy is the importance of the “three Rs:” Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.
