Peshawar: Fatima, a 13-year-old Pakistani student, uses a unique way of expressing the dangers posed by climate change.
Rising global temperatures, melting glaciers, unseasonal rains, flooding of rivers, are highlighting the reality of climate change.
According to experts, if the earth’s temperature continues to rise at the same rate, it could cause sea levels to rise by up to three feet, which could be extremely dangerous for birds and humans. While scientists around the world are conducting research to bring this fact to the attention of the people, some eco-friendly people are working to spread awareness among the people in various ways.
Among those working to improve the environment is 13-year-old Fatima from Peshawar.
Fatima is a ninth-grader who is young but wide-minded. From an early age, she developed a passion for humanity in her childhood and vowed to make her passion useful to others.
When Fatima, a lover of colors, noticed a decrease in natural colors, she began to brush her emotions on the canvas and to raise awareness about the dangers of weather through paintings.
Fatima’s paintings illustrate how climate change poses a threat to humans and birds on the planet.
Fatima also uses social media along with painting to create awareness among the people and also tries to create awareness among the people by giving speeches in various seminars and schools.
While playing the role of a soldier in the practical field to reduce climate change, Fatima considers planting trees with her peers and keeping the environment clean as part of her mission.
She is seen carrying a shopper in her hand and picking up trash from the sidewalks and highways, conveying the message of cleanliness and eco-friendliness.
Fatima says the only way to prevent this unseen threat is to protect existing trees and plant new ones and take care of their growth.
She said that she requested the government to include subjects related to climate change in the curriculum of schools and colleges so that this hidden and deadly enemy could be better confronted and the future could be adorned with the best colors. ۔
Fatima says that like Malala Yousafzai, she wants to do something for the people of her country and is hopeful that her efforts will bring true color and tomorrow’s Pakistan will be green and prosperous.
