Green Pakistan @ Silver Oaks Global Citizenship
With less than 2.5% forests, where they should at least be 25%, Pakistan has the highest annual deforestation rate in Asia. Unless this issue is fully recognized and addressed on war footing, we are heading into an irreversible human and ecological crisis in the country. At Silver Oaks, we started this campaign with Independence Day celebrations where an awareness campaign on the need for planting trees was launched. Following on from this and joining hands in the “Green Pakistan” drive, pupils from Pre-school & Primary, Principals and staff members participated in tree plantation activity at 7 Campuses Oscar Wilde (G-13); Aristotle (Lehtarar); Socrates (PWD); S.H.Manto (Gulshan Abad); Plato (E Block); Ghalib (A Block); & Galileo (Scheme III) while planting more than 200 saplings of fruits and other trees on Sep 12 & 13. Oakians planted the seeds for commencing the process of restoring our eco-balance and, in the process, are being educated about the value of taking care of our environment.
