Multan: BSS Multan has had the honour of becoming a WWF Green School and its students have volunteered eagerly for the foundation's Eco-internship Programme.

The first session of the internship took place on April 6, 2012, where the volunteers were briefed on the art of nature photography. They were asked to capture the beauty of nature with the click of a camera.

The members, also known as the Green Students, were then called on July 16, 2012 for a three-day session comprising various tasks, which they completed working in groups of five.

On the first day, the interns made documentaries based on different environmental issues that Pakistan faces today, their causes, and their effects. The second day was dedicated to recycling, where students used waste material such as empty bottles, used paper, and old T-shirts to make useful new things like pencil holders and photo frames. They were also taught how to name their companies, make logos and generate a marketing scheme for their products.

On the third and final day, the students made magazines. They named their magazines and used recycled material to spread awareness. In their magazines, they concentrated on pressing issues such as water wastage, animal abuse and deforestation. They were also trained to put up a survival tent and cope with harsh natural conditions.

All their work was scored by the representatives of WWF and the winning teams were announced. The students were then given their certificates by Principal Ms Aasia Khurram Agha. At the end, the students were declared official WWF ambassadors.
