Students at The City’s School Bhit Shah in Bhit Shah Sindh, Pakistan worked with their partners at Derby Academy in Boston, USA to discuss the many issues regarding the environment that their community is facing. They launched an awareness campaign called Growing Trees, Spreading Peace in their community, the goal of which was to educate the locals on the severe effects of deforestation on the environment and to encourage them to plant trees. Students at The City’s School visited other schools and recruited Peace Environment Ambassadors (PEA), conducted interviews around the community, cleaned streets and planted trees, organized a community event to show solidarity, and prepared a report that was shared with the whole community.
This student project was created as part of GCA program, a youth virtual exchange program that connects students in North America and the Middle East and North Africa. It is run by Global Nomads Group, in partnership with PEACE.
