The Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Climate Change Malik Amin Aslam led the event.

“The flag of Pakistan was hoisted all over the world by making Gujranwala clean and green,” the SAPM said while addressing a function on occasion.
“To combat climate change, we’re planting trees on a large scale for future generations,” he said.
More than 12,500 students, teachers, and civil society members participated in the venture to surpass the record of planting 37,000 seedlings in one minute set by India.
The plantation drive was carried out along the 14-kilometer greenbelt of GT Road, passing through Gujranwala city.
