The Nature Carnival is an event aimed at enhancing awareness about nature conservation among students and general public through interactive games and competitions.
On the occasion, an array of activities including an art competition, quiz competition, essay competition, interactive 3D model making competition, magic shows, environmental puppet shows, a lucky draw, live music and an environmental theatre were arranged.
“The WWF-Pakistan has been working on environmental education for the past two decades; the travelling nature carnival is an integral part of its school outreach,” said an organizer told the media.
Over 60 schools across Lahore participated by constructing 3D models and giving live presentations at the venue. These project stalls were installed on various themes such as animals and plants of wetlands, campus plantation, effects of water and air pollution on health, fresh water conservation, energy conservation and reduction of carbon footprint.
The Travelling Nature Carnival was the culmination of these joint environmental endeavours and the funds raised from this initiative will go towards WWF-Pakistans conservation projects.
