  1. DO WE ALL ARE CATIOUS ABOUT ENVIRONMENT. hHOW WE LINK THE THREE (3) E’s——- EDUCATION-ENVIRONMENT-ECONOMICS- VERY DIFFICULT TO UNDERSTAND. IF NOT DIFFICULT HOW WE BUILD THE RELATIONS.
    DOES ANY MULLAH OF GILGIT KNOW THE THREE (3) R’s
    REDUCE WASTE–REUSE WASTE–RECYCLE WASTE—- HOW THE RELATION W WILL BUILD- MY HUMBLE SUGGESTIONS DO SOME THING PRACTICLE LIKE (SNT & KVO) ABBRIVATIONS ARE VARE RARE- SHUMSHAL NATURAL TRUST-KHUNJARAV VILLAGE ORGANIZATION————
    SITING IN THE AC’S HALL WITH LUNCH AND DINNER WILL NOT SAVE THE MOTHER EARTH.
    WHAT ARE IN THE DAYS AND MONTHS— ACTION IS LIFE DAYS AND MONTHS ARE CONTROLLED BY THE UNSEEN POWER THAT IS BEYOUND WORDS DEEDS, VISION, THOUGHTS, KNOWLEDGE, SCIENCES etc.

    MY HUMBLEREQEST FOR THE SAKE OF GOD DON’T ORGANISE THE SLOGANS FOR FUNDING AND BEGGING UTALISE THE LOCAL AVAILABLE RESOURCES AND POTENTIALS TO HEAL THE ENVIRONMENT OF GILGIT-BALTISTAN—-

  2. to some extent i second this guy above, how many plants each of the organizers has planted this year? how many did each of them planted last year? and how many trees they plan to plant next year….they all probably gathered there, met some old friends, enjoyed “refreshment” after the “awareness program”….drank tea and soda in disposable cups, which they threw all around in the face of their mother earth later…and then, occupied their “Hybrid” eco-friendly smoke less NCP cars and cruised back home….the ones who actually need the awareness are the ones who were not aware of such a program being held in a hall filled up with people in black suits and red neck ties….
