ENTHUSIASTIC STUDENTS FROM DIFFERENT SCHOOLS WALK FOR SUSTAINABILITY:


Enthusiastic students from Aitchison College, Beaconhouse and LACAS get out of their comfort zones to walk their way to the liberty park and view its sustainability issues and the way the park was being managed. The walk was organized by Mr. Salman Qadeer  ( Faculty – LACAS and Beaconhouse)  and Mr. Faisal Saeed ( A- Level Coordinator Beacon house Gulberg Campus).

Mr.Ali Hasnain Sayed (Manager Policy at WWF-Pakistan) coordinated the walk and encouraged the students to test the environmental sustainability of the park which lies in the heart of the city.  The students observed the bird species, had a look at the different trees and observed the overall management of the park.  The students unanimously agreed that the city should have more land under parks where the city dwellers shall come and enjoy with their family and friends. However they believe that as a nation we should also learn how to behave in a public place and do not litter or destroy park assets willfully. They further lamented that blaming everything on the government is not the right approach. If people want to have less air and noise pollution, they should come out of their comfort zones by walking short distances and using public transport. If people from all the sections of the society will show willingness then government will act on it thus solving the sustainability issues that haunt us
