Yasser Rijjal, 22 Irbid

Babylon

Understanding the important role that nature and green space play in the wellbeing of individuals and society, Yasser Rijjal founded Babylon, an initiative that cultivates lush outdoor spaces across Amman’s balconies, rooftops and open areas. Along with improving the aesthetics of the city and the wellbeing of its residents, these efforts combat environmental pollution. Babylon also seeks to revive the local agricultural scene, encouraging citizens to grow their own produce. Ranked among the best 8 projects in Jordan, Babylon received fourth place at the "Fikretna  Khadra" awards, organized by the Jordan Green Building Council.
