ISLAMABAD: A Pakistani student has bagged silver medal in the 7th International Environmental Project Olympiad (INEPO Euroasia) held in Baku, Azerbaijan where students from 47 countries presented 123 projects.

Alvaz Adnan, a student of PakTurk School Lahore, presented her biology project on removal of dyes from effluent of factories and won a silver medal.

Commenting on the success, Chairman PakTurk Unal Tosur and Director Education Kamil Ture said that Pakistan students have been leaving others behind in almost all the international competitions which has encouraged them to boost investment in the future of Pakistan.

“We aim to shape the view of Pakistani students to think on a global scale while being sensitive to their traditions and values; they should be well acquainted with the competitive environment and capable to cope with the on-going and forthcoming challenges, they said.”

The INEPO Eurasia, held every year, encourages students from around the world to develop projects that can solve environmental issues.
