UAE has always made efforts to bring forth the people who are inclined towards solving global problems particularly related to environment. PYF-PAD is looking to extend this practice to the Pakistani youth especially the students. The efforts being made by the Pakistan Youth Forum are significant in spreading the awareness among the younger generation in the UAE.
Furthermore, PYF-PAD intends to host the conference every year to continue the good work and embolden the young Pakistani students to come up with innovative ideas and solutions to counter various challenges faced by the UAE and the entire world. PYF has also taken several other initiatives as well, the most prominent of which is the Shukran initiative, which aims to thank the working community of the UAE for their continued efforts.
