STAFF REPORT LHR: The World Wide Fund for Nature – Pakistan (WWF-Pakistan), in partnership with Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Limited (SNGPL), has recently held an environmental education activity at a local school here. The activity was conducted under the “Spallation” campaign of WWF-Pakistan, where children from schools across Pakistan learnt about issues such as sustainability, environment, species and water and sanitation and then compete in a spelling competition.
This years campaign theme is “Energy Conservation”, which goes beyond the general concept of electricity being the only energy source.
On the occasion, officials from SNGPL conducted an awareness raising session for students, which was followed by a prize distribution ceremony.
In his remarks, Jawad Ashraf, Senior Media Consultant for SNGPL, said, “Usually people perceive electricity as an energy conservation issue. We are creating awareness about the fact that it is also important for us all to conserve natural gas, which is important for home and industrial use.”
SNGPL officials found the children to be receptive of the message.
Sayeda Saleem, the Principal of School of International Studies in Science and Arts added, “Spallation has become a fun yet focused campaign to bring factual information to children about critical environmental issue.”
