The government launches a green youth movement in order to improve the environment


Asad Umar, Federal Minister for Planning and Development, Reforms and Special Initiatives, reiterated the PTI government’s commitment to making Pakistan green and clean, saying that the Green Youth Movement (GYM) would play a significant role in mitigating the effects of climate change on the environment.

As part of the prime minister’s Kamyab Jawan Program, the minister inaugurated the Green Youth Movement at the Convention Center in Islamabad this week.

The ceremony was attended by Zartaj Gul, Usman Dar, the British Council Pakistan Country Director, Amir Ramzan, the Chairperson of the Higher Education Commission, Shaista Sohail, and a large number of youth and students from various universities, as well as stakeholders in the educational sector.

According to Federal Minister Asad Umar, Pakistan is the world’s 10th most affected country by climate change. However, he stated that new dams are currently being built and should be completed within the next five to seven years.

The British Council’s new youth leadership program, the “Pakistan Youth Leadership Initiative,” is helping to support the GYM initiative by providing technical assistance, training, digital engagement, and international connections. Through Green Elections, the School of Leadership Foundation (SoLF) is assisting the British Council in mobilising youth and establishing GYM clubs at 137 public sector universities.

The British Council will contribute 2.8 million pounds to the Green Youth Movement initiative, while the Pakistani government has already invested Rs. 238 million in this much-needed initiative.
