COVID-19 does not mean climate action is on hold

We are a social enterprise, we are looking forward to a transformational and green recovery with early action on a longer-term agenda to address climate change, avoid habitat loss and fragmentation, reverse the loss of biodiversity, reduce pollution and improve waste management and infrastructure in Pakistan.

We wish to enable young people to become a key part of the solution to environmental challenges in Pakistan

Green Box is a youth-driven engagement lab nurturing sustainability leadership in Pakistan. We are developing a community of young people for environmental action and accountability. We are doing this through tools, practical experience, and network to drive change nation-wide.

Untapping Greener Future Together!

UN insists on a world that cannot afford a lost generation of youth, their lives set back by COVID-19 and their voices stifled by a lack of participation. We need to do more to harness the talents of young people to address the crisis and its aftermath. Green Box is committing to a green future of work in the post COVIDー19 world. Our commitment resonates with GreenStimulus package announced by the Government of Pakistan and Prime Minister Imran Khan.

Let’s un-tap the future of green jobs in Pakistan together!
