There’s still time to get tickets to next Saturday’s TEDx event, and as a speaker, fans of this blog will get a 20 percent discount. I have 10 discount codes to give away to the first people who comment below or reach me by social media.

And even if you’re sick of hearing my rants about preserving archeology and heritage sites, there are plenty of interesting speakers this year, doing much needed positive work in Lebanon. I have written about some of these individuals and organizations before including Beirut Green Project, represented by cofounder Dima Boulad:
