Geneva backs Beirut science days

A science exhibition held in Beirut this weekend is the result of cooperation between Geneva and the Lebanese capital.

Geneva mayor Manual Tornare, who opened the event, told the press on Saturday that his city had a strong Lebanese community, and the two cities were bound by special ties.

The idea for the science weekend came from a Lebanese businessman, Malek el Khoury, who lives in the Geneva area.

Geneva, which has been holding "science nights" to bring science closer to the general public for eight years, backed the Lebanese event with the sum of SFr50,000 ($44,500) and contributed two of the projects on show.

Tornare expressed the hope that cooperation between the two cities would expand in the future.
