“Because of the QCT network, it was easy to connect with relevant people and align mutual goals with them. Because of the people in our country chapter in Pakistan, I got the opportunity to get acquainted with other climate activists whom we have then worked with on environmental campaigns. Together we have amplified impact in environmental protection.”
