Input by Irfan Zia.

Category: INTERNATIONAL (shared award)

Rafia Saleem (Pakistan)
Rafia spoke out and wrote about problems of
environmental degradation, in particular the dangers
that youth are facing in urban and rural areas due to
the contamination of drinking water. Striving to be
heard even though she was young, she became the
youngest person to present a paper at an international
conference attended by government officials, policy
makers and water experts. Rafia plans to continue
promoting her environmental concerns through the media
and by holding programs encouraging youth to express
their concerns and to initiate action.
