Prime Minister Youth Programme took great initiative
Prime Minister Youth Programme to Take Green Youth Movement (GYM) and Startup Pakistan Programmes to All Universities.
The purpose was to discuss the establishment of Green Youth Movement (GYM) Clubs & introduction of Prime Minister’s Startup Pakistan programme in all public & private sector universities of Pakistan, to be run under the umbrella of Prime Minister’s Kamyab Jawan Programme.
Green Youth Movement (GYM) Club project aims at the civic engagement of youth, especially the university students, by making them execute the Green Youth Movement (GYM) under Prime Minister’s Kamyab Jawan Programme.
It would create a platform for the social contribution of youth in raising awareness about climate change in the country, besides helping them earn a decent livelihood by promoting social entrepreneurship to address challenges of climate change.
Startup Pakistan Programme would be a flagship initiative of Prime Minister’s Kamyab Jawan Programme to create a national eco-system for the development of Innovation-Driven Entrepreneurs (IDEs) in the country.
It intends to train youth across universities and top 300 TVET sector institutes in emerging technologies through digital incubation. It would not only promote entrepreneurship culture but would also create employment opportunities for youth.
It would be a great way forward for sustainable economic growth in the modern knowledge economy. It was agreed in meeting that Higher Education Commission would collaborate with PM’s Youth office for effective implementation of this programme.
