Stemming from its commitment to environmental causes, the Graphic Design (GD) Department organizes annually an exhibition on Up Cycling Projects to spread awareness among the university students.

The guest speaker for this year was Mr. Paul Abi Rached, President of "Terre Liban". Mr. Abi Rached was very impressed by the students' projects as he expressed his intention to collaborate with the GD department in future ventures.

Mr. Patrick Zoughbi, Founder and General Manager of VEA, and Ms. Nelly Baz, Managing Partner at Hbr and Contributor at Comma and ArabAd, also attended the event and distributed trophies and certificates to the winners of the MUBS students’ contests.

The winners for "Best Adaptable Design” will also sign an agreement alongside VEA, which entitles them to royalty fees on the sales of their items. Additionally, the GD Department will be working on a research project, in collaboration with Hbr Creative Platform, during the upcoming semesters. .
