Young people are socially conscious and active agents of change, responsible and idealist, as well as well-versed in technology. They are great role models for society. Hence, the YPARD-Pakistan provides a platform to demonstrate the initiatives and celebrate the “Youth and Environmental Challenges”. we are willing to engage the youth in developing activities and drive the environmental initiatives for innovative campaigning, advocacy as well as volunteer contribution. YPARD-Pakistan would like to enhance the impact of such initiatives through dialogues with involvement of young people to lead the program in their areas and regions for compressing the environmental challenges. For this purpose, i would like to request honorable people of Climate Club to support our Country's youth for further development and sustainability of environmental changes in the country. By prmoting YPs we will have better place to live. thank you very much, Looking forward to hearing from the community who is interested to support Young professionals and Youth. Kind Regards, Shahla
