ISLAMABAD: Students, through their science projects, sensitised citizens about global warming and catastrophes attached to it and proposed steps to mitigate it.

Students of Al-Huda International School took part in creating awareness about global warming by organising a science exhibition under the title ‘Earth Matters’.

They displayed over 60 projects to highlight the issues of global warming, urging that an organic life style and natural method in work was the only solution to save the planet.

Topics like bio gas, water, solar energy, green grills, hydroponic planting, collection of garbage, floods and mitigation, importance of birds and so on were well covered by students through their projects.

These topics were connected with Islam and its teachings and in all stalls, related verses of the Quran were also highlighted.

“Through this exhibition, we are trying to create awareness as environment is a serious issue the world is facing today,” said Fareha Wasim, a teacher.

A seventh grader said that everyone will have to play a role towards reducing the impact of fast changing climate. Another teacher Fouzia Umar said that besides taking care of the climate and human beings, there is also need to protect birds.

Students from montessori to senior grades constructed and displayed their projects. Each project was presented in a distinctive way and the uniqueness of the event was that each child participated and the projects were made from recycled and eco-friendly material.

The exhibition comprised of different sub themes such as ‘Green Vibes Only’, ‘Air Care’, ‘Slow the Flow’, ‘Master the Disaster’, ‘Waste Wise’ and ‘Now and Never’.

The student’s project display and demonstration of projects was an effort towards provoking thoughts and leave the audience inspired. Students had captured the attention and focus of the audience and visitors throughout the day.

The message from all students was clear and crisp that this was high time that we have to take care of our planet.

They emphasised that according to the Quran, environmental conservation is a religious duty as well as a social obligation and not an optional matter. The event was graced by dignitaries and educationists from the twin cities, journalists and the kinsfolk of the students.

Different schools and university students also made an appearance and interacted with students. The programme was spread over two days and was split into three slots of morning and evening.
