Who are we?
Today the world is facing environmental problems. Global warming, increased level of Green House Gasses, extreme weather events, heat waves, pollution and high vulnerability risk index are the burning issues. Climate Change is a reality and it is now affecting each one of us. If we want to make a transition to a low-carbon society and avoid the harmful environmental, social and economic impacts of unchecked climate change, all segments of society must be mobilized to play its role.
A simple solution to these problems lies in increasing the green cover by planting more and more trees. Trees and plants are the prime source of environmental purification and beautification. Trees inhale carbon dioxide and exhale oxygen, reduce temperature and create a healthy effect, both physically and psychologically, on human beings
Under Mission Green Pakistan campaign, individuals, children, youth groups, non-governmental organizations, educational institutions, business and industry, civil society and government departments are encouraged to plant trees to make Pakistan truly a green and clean country.
