Environmental School Campaign; “Save our Planet Earth” (2006 – 2008). Focused on the necessary goal of developing ecologically responsible communities and thinkers, and the role of architects in spreading the word the campaign was set. I initiated the idea of the ‘Green Day” campaign under the Title: “Save our Planet Earth”.  With a deep believe that while our profession has inadvertently contributed to this present environmental crisis. Consequently, as architects we have the potential, indeed the responsibility to play a leadership role in addressing and discovering solutions that make a positive difference in how we shape our future and not merely necessarily in how we design it, the team was established. The campaign was designed and disseminated under my supervision, a team of highly enthusiastic architects who believe in the possibilities of making a change. I delivered various lectures and workshops to school children at different age groups. The aim was to spread awareness to school kids on problems of Global Warming and planets mal-usage, and what we are capable of doing to stop that in Developing Countries. The campaign successfully ran for the duration of one month on two subsequent years (2006 and 2007).
