US Ambassador Richard Olson on Monday celebrated the Earth Day with 65 Pakistani students who used their creativity to raise environmental awareness.

Ambassador Olson visited the Helen Keller Center and joined students from the US Embassy's English Access Microscholarship Programme and Islamabad's Directorate of Special Education and Social Welfare programmes to highlight this year's Earth Day theme: The Face of Climate Change. 

Earth Day, which originated in the United States in 1970, is now celebrated around the world every April 22.

"We can each do our part. From recycling to cleaning up our streams, every individual can make a difference," Ambassador Olson said.
