President Dr Arif Alvi has urged the young generation to play their “dynamic role” in the government’s 10 Billion Tree Tsunami campaign and reverse the degenerating effects of global warming and environmental pollution. “The onus to keep the environment clean and green now vests with the young generations,” he said while addressing a ceremony of monsoon tree plantation drive held here at the Aiwan e Sadr on Saturday. He expressed confidence that they would carry “this burden” and secure the country’s future. The president stressed the need for adopting environment-friendly habits at the country’s scenic and tourists’ spots by properly disposing of trash and garbage. On the occasion, the president along with Begum Samina Alvi also planted saplings of Chir pine (Pinus Roxburghii) in the monsoon season under the tree plantation programme. Sharing his past experiences prior to becoming the president, he said that they had distributed 100,000 saplings among different households of Karachi.
