Climate change

On the occasion of International Day of Climate Action, KMBL Green Office Team opted to create environment awareness among the school children of a public school. The school located in the suburbs of Islamabad caters to the children of low grade employees of the GOP.

Environment awareness among the youth helps create a societal trend for preserving the environment. The focus of the session was to promote awareness of the reality of climate change and encourage personal commitment to change. The interactive session with the students was very productive as it helped the youth to take into account the environment in their daily lives in order to become a way of life and increase awareness of friendly environment ethics. The students were briefed about Nature Conservation and how they can play their role in preserving the environment through small steps like washing their hands, not littering in public places, saving resources like water, paper and electricity, recycling, reusing, planting more trees and spreading awareness among their family and friends to resist the effects environmental pollution. The students took keen interest in the discussion and responded to queries regarding their understanding of climate change.

Potted plants were distributed to inculcate a sense of ownership and care among the students for the sapling planted by them at a place of their choice.
