World Earth Day
World Earth Day.
Sana Samad Turbat Every year, World Earth Day is celebrated across world including Pakistan on 22 April to raise awareness about the environmental issues to protect earth.
Unfortunately, in our country this issue is not being focused due to which the problems are increasing rapidly and threatening development and economy of the country.
Pakistan is facing environmental problems including degradation of natural resources, industrial and vehicular pollution, air and water pollution, solid waste management, degradation of health and many more.
These problems are creating problems of poverty, pollution, inadequate economic and resource management.
Still very few people are aware about the harmful effect of pollution on themselves and their environment.
This is not an easy task to resolve these problems; a lot of efforts are required for it.
Every year we celebrate World Earth Day, so on this day government should launch a drive for plantation in schools, colleges, universities, public places etc.
The World Wide Fund for Nature Pakistan, Pakistan’s Green School Programme and International Eco Internship should also support and grow plant across the country and make Pakistan an environmental place.
