Pakistan Wetlands Programme

Green School Programme

Earth Day is considered to be the best time of the year to introduce children to environmentally friendly habits to preserve and protect Mother Earth. WWF – Pakistan Wetlands Programme and Green School Programme with coordination of Beaconhouse School System F 7/2 Islamabad observed and organized the Earth Day 2012. Green Earth Green Pakistan theme was adopted by considering the International Theme “Mobilize the Earth”

The school students learnt the importance of preserving planet earth in a fun-filled activity arranged by WWF – Pakistan WetlandsProgramme and Green School Programme. An entertaining yet informative puppet show was held to inform the children that Earth Day is not one day of celebration but it is instead a reminder of what we should be doing all year long. Motivational videos with special emphasis on the environmental pollution (air, water and land) were also part of the activity. Children were saddened to hear about the habitat loss – due to deforestation and degradation of environment- which threatens native wildlife.

Awareness raising of environmental issues were highlighted with the help of Puppet Show and motivating video promos for young

This was a historical election: Now let us move on

I know Imran Khan’s fans are disappointed; as one of them I toally understand their pain. This was a good election and the results are also a clear expression of Pakistan’s digital divide: there is not much twittering or Facebooking going on in our villages and if you are winning on Twitter, it does not mean you are also winning in the dusty streets of Pakistani villages where Imran, Nawaz sharif and others show up only around election time.
Let us move on: this is a victory against those who have previously conquered their own nation at least four times in recent history.

Eight Countries Allow Pakistani Expats  to Vote in May 11 elections

Several countries including Saudi Arabia, United Kingdom, Australia and the United States have agreed to allow Pakistani citizens living in their territories to cast their votes at designated polling stations.

However, the Pakistani election commission, despite the issuance of an emergency presidential ordinance, has declared that it is impossible for them to make the necessary arrangements to include overseas Pakistanis in this election. Our question is simply this:

Yes, the ordinance was passed only two days before elections, but could they have not prepared for this in advance?

school children. Emphasis was on the environmental pollution which includes air, water and land. Beautiful animals’ puppets complained about these pollutions and excessive deforestation and because of lost of their habitats, these species are now endangered or near to extinct. Human beings are also severely affected by these issues.

Then these puppets asked questions in the quiz and winners received gifts. These puppets also took an “Earth Pledge” from the children to keep their surroundings clean, plant a tree and forward this message to their

friends and families. The same kind of event will be carried out on April 24th on another venue with different schools children. With the theme, ‘Green Earth Green Pakistan’ in accordance with international Earth Day theme “Mobilize the Earth”, the activity was designed to raise awareness of environmental concerns. Banners and colourful charts were put up, reading ‘Go Green’ and ‘Plant a tree today’, to encourage the children on eco-friendly living and preserving the biodiversity.

Each year on the 22 April Earth Day is celebrated across the world and each year WWF observe this important day with celebrations. Each year the day marks the anniversary of the birth of the modern environmental movement during the 1970s. The movement took place against detrimental impacts of modernizations and industrialization on human being and his environment. Earth Day reminds us the fact

that we have only one earth to support the ever increasing number of human beings and other fellow creatures. This day once again invokes our consciousness about humanity’s growing ecological footprints and resource consumption patterns that are going to be harmful for earth’s natural resources.

Here are five things we can do on this Earth Day to make the planet healthy and pollution-free:

1. Plant trees and flowers because they are imperative for eco-friendly atmosphere.

2. Reduce, reuse and recycle everything today.

3. Learn more about environment and how we can support it.

    In my opinion there’s nothing more satisfying than the feeling that you’re passing down the most important values to the younger generation. What I liked about this year’s Earth Day was that so many children around the world became part of it. I subscribe to the theory that education is the best way to raise awareness about environmental issues and that’s why I appreciate the initiative launched by the authorities of my native Toronto who decided to organize a number of biodiversity workshops and other attractions so every member of my family could learn a little bit more about the protection and conservation of biodiversity in our province.

    Jane: Indeed, that is what we are trying to do in our little capacities in this country as well which we call Pakistan (The land of the pure) but with the rising illetracy, corruption and what not we are just scratching the surface yet again the will is there and that is indeed a good start. Stay blessed!
