WWF Pakistan and BNU Sign MoU, Vow to work for Environmental Education


Lahore: World Wide Fund for Nature – Pakistan (WWF – Pakistan) and Beaconhouse National University (BNU) have signed a MoU to jointly work towards spreading environmental education through WWF’s Eco Internship Programme.

MoU was signed by Mr. Ali Hassan Habib, Director General WWF – Pakistan, Mr. Sartaj Aziz, Vice Chancellor BNU and Mr. Zaeem Yaqoob Khan, Director Marketing and External Relations BNU.

The Eco Internship Programme is a nation-wide, 6 session long, environmental workshop whereby students are given a series of interactive activities and presentations to foster a sense of civic responsibility and teach them about the country’s environment. Hands on activities, interactive discussions, field trip to an ecologically significant site and creative challenges are a part of this extensive programme. The Eco Internship is steadily becoming an integral part of the annual calendar of almost every private school and college across Pakistan targeting approximately 2000-3000 students each year.

This Internship is held from class 8 till Masters level students nationwide.  Students receive a certificate after the successful completion of the internship. This affiliates them with a globally renowned institution and which is a vital tool for further education and employment.

This partnership is meant to create a constituency of environmentally enlightened, like minded people who can effect change.
