What is aMED ?

The Silk Museum is involved in community work together with sister organisation aMED (“Association Mémoire et Développement”). 

Created in 2000, aMED aims to protect and enhance Lebanon’s natural heritage

  • Initiate pilot projects to allow schools, universities and municipalities to benefit from these experiences by working to protect and respect the environment
  • To cooperate with competent authorities to protect and develop our rural and cultural heritage through sustainable development
  • Restore, preserve and develop our living heritage of flora and fauna as well as our historical buildings
  • Look for ways to enhance and develop the culture of crafts
