Climate Action Hero: Prime Minister Imran Khan To Make Statement At Global Forum
Arnold Invites Schwarzenegger Imran Khan To Make A Video Statement!
Climate change is a topic that is very close to Prime Minister Imran Khan. When India tried to attack Balakot and uprooted a dozen trees, Imran Khan was visibly upset because he is very vocal and emotional about climate change. So much so, that the Prime Minister's billion tree tsunami project in the province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa has been internationally recognized as a stellar accomplishment.
Ever since Imran Khan has come to power, he has expressed his wishes to make Pakistan a clean and green country once again. His 10-billion tree plantation tsunami project over the course of five years is well on its way to becoming one of the best project completions in Pakistan to date.
It comes as little to no surprise, then, that Imran Khan has now been invited to make a statement at the annual Austrian World Summit as a “Climate Action Hero” and share his vision about climate change.
The Prime Minister will make a statement on the global forum on coming Thursday via video and he has been invited by none other than the person who has similar traits as our stylish and handsome PM - yes, the one and only Arnold Schwarzenegger!
Prime Minister's aide, Faisal Javed Khan broke the news on Twitter that on the invitation of former actor turned politician Arnold Schwarzenegger, Prime Minister Imran Khan will make a video statement and express his love for a greener and sustainable world, to curb the effects of climate change.

He also said:
"Prime Minister Imran will share his vision and how Pakistan is committed to fighting climate change, conserving biodiversity, generating green jobs, alleviating poverty, and energizing the country's youth to become custodians of a Green Future. #PakistanFightingClimateChange"
Moreover, he talked about Arnold Schwarzenegger's fight against climate change for nearly 20 years and said:
"Arnold Schwarzenegger has been fighting pollution and climate change for nearly 20 years. His Climate Initiative focuses on building awareness of the climate crisis and the urgent need for action every day and once a year at the Austrian World Summit."
He concluded by saying:
Arnold Schwarzenegger appreciated PM Khan's commitment & steps taken towards fighting climate change and called him a Climate Action Hero, A Strong and Important partner in the climate action alliance. #PakistanFlightingClimateChange— Faisal Javed Khan (@FaisalJavedKhan) September 17, 2020
There are many similarities between Imran Khan and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Both developed an interest and passion in their respective careers at a very young age. Imran Khan started playing cricket at the age of 13 while Arnold chose bodybuilding over soccer as a career at the age of 14. They both went on to become legends of their respective careers.
Both personalities are notable philanthropists. They both decided to become politicians and serve their respective countries. Also, they are both great advocates of the fight against climate change.
The Austrian World Summit is managed by The Schwarzenegger Climate Initiative.
