Austrian World Summit 2020 – The Schwarzenegger Climate Initiative – is scheduled to take place on May 25-26 in Vienna, Austria.
Bolo Jawan has learnt from a reliable source that Prime Minister Imran Khan has received an invitation for the coveted Austrian World Summit 2020.
The invitation serves as an acknowledgement for both the Government of Pakistan as well as Prime Minister Imran Khan as strong and important partners in the climate action alliance.
The Summit will provide an opportunity to PM Khan to take part in bilateral meetings with the Austrian President and other heads of state.
At the conference in the Hofburg Palace, (if attended) the Prime Minister will engage with influential climate leaders to forge partnerships, exchange ideas and accelerate local, regional and global collaborations.
The summit will close with an outdoor Climate Kirtag festival.
Last year, Imran Khan spoke at length about the grave challenges posed by climate change at the 74th session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA).
The motto for this year’s summit is “Be the solution.”
Pakistan is among the handful of countries in the world with a dedicated Ministry of Climate Change.
