"We are in a climate emergency, and we need urgent action. Let's prioritise climate education and make it Level 1. Because there is no Planet B."
One of the youngest Climate Change activists and social entrepreneurs in Pakistan, Emaan Khan wants to save the planet. She believes that the climate crisis needs an urgent call and climate education is the most important step towards it. Along with her parents, she has developed a free education portal by the name of Earth Warrior Pakistan.
The project is supported by selling eco friendly merchandise and climate story books. Her awareness project, Peekaboo, has a mascot, a rag doll by the name of Fizza (a girls’ name, in Urdu, meaning environment). The doll comes with changeable clothes and a storybook, with stories written and illustrated by Pakistani children about various super heroes, who help Fizza protect the environment, fight global warming and the destructive effects of climate change. Emaan also has her own Youtube channel, Earth Warrior Pakistan, where she regularly uploads climate education videos.
