GCU Poster Competition
Lahore, Over 200 students took part in a poster competition organised by the Sustainable Development Study Centre (SDSC) of the Government College University (GCU) on Friday.
The theme of the competition was ‘Many Species, One Planet and One Future’.
The posters highlighted that the world without biodiversity would be a very bleak place.
Millions of people and millions of species all share the same planet, and only together we can enjoy a safer and more prosperous future.
Talking about the competition, event Coordinator Laila Shahzad said the competition showed that at least Pakistani students were well aware of the environmental issues.
She said one of the significant reasons for arranging the poster competition was to highlight the recent calamity of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill which might be growing five times faster than previously estimated and was in danger of accelerating out of control.
The GCU SDSC PhD students presented a poster that explained the tragedy of the pelicans which were hard hit by this oil spill.
