It all began with a tweet by Ambassador Martin Kobler, the charming German Ambassador to Pakistan, inviting other active Pakistani twitter followers to a #tweetup. A friend shared the tweet asking where all the women were and that’s when I decided to get in touch – all the while thinking this would be a #TwitterLive session. Turns out it was an invite to take part in the first-ever Twitter party at the Embassy.
Fast forward a few weeks later, and here we are! This was a truly special gathering. The launch of the #GreenIt campaign focuses on encouraging sustainable living throughout the country, from planting and harvesting organic food to saving water while carrying out daily chores.
It was an honor to meet with so many caring, motivated individuals, all of whom are so passionate about their respective causes, be it environmental awareness, equal access to education and jobs for women or greater accessibility for limited mobility individuals.
