To raise awareness about climate change among the general public, the Sindh Branch of the Pakistan Red Crescent (PRC) celebrated Global Climate Change Week from October 18 to October 22, 2021, Friday.
According to a press release issued by the Media and Communication Department of PRC-Sindh, the Climate Change Adaptation (CCA) Section organized an orientation session on the “role of women in climate change” on October 22 at Emergency Operation Centre, Teen Talwar, Karachi. More than 25 women representatives from various women’s organizations attended.
PRC Sindh Provincial Secretary Kanwar Waseem said that climate is connected to everyone and everyone has to play a positive role and responsibility in climate change.
The provincial secretary said that the mother is the first school of the child and the mother as a woman can play an important role in climate change by adopting a healthy lifestyle.
“Tree planting or effective waste management are just a few of the ingredients that can help prevent the effects of climate change,” he added.
However, everyone has to take the initiative and change their thinking, adopt good habits and then good effects can come.
In his concluding remarks, Kanwar Waseem said that Pakistan Red Crescent, in collaboration with the German Red Cross (GRC), was implementing a climate change adaptation program in Karachi and other districts of Sindh Province.
“If anyone wants to learn about climate change or work with us on this significant subject, our doors are always open,” said the PRC Sindh provincial secretary.
