Over a hundred people gathered on a sunny Saturday for a walking tour of Ashrafieh, led by a community organization seeking to preserve Beirut's heritage and promote sustainable transportation.Tachdjian said his organization, which is part of the community NGO Logos Association, puts together festivals, hikes and garage sales to raise awareness of Beirut's heritage and prevent the destruction of historical buildings and stairs.Tachdjian said stairs and old buildings in Beirut were under threat from nearby construction projects, and so Achrafieh Stairs sought to highlight the city's heritage and history through its events.Tachdjian added that Achrafieh Stairs had also worked with the Culture Ministry, the Beirut Municipality and other activists and NGOs to save some of Beirut's historical staircases, including the Vendome stairs.
