New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will launch a global initiative ‘Lifestyle for the Environment, LiFE, Movement’ tomorrow at 6 PM via video conferencing. The programme will witness the participation of Bill Gates, Co-Chairman, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Climate Economist Lord Nicholas Stern and other noted personalities. Prime Minister will also deliver the keynote address during the programme.
The launch will initiate ‘LiFE Global Call for Papers’ inviting ideas and suggestions from academics, universities and research institutions to influence and persuade individuals, communities and organisations across the world to adopt an environmentally conscious lifestyle.
The idea of LiFE was introduced by Prime Minister Modi during the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference of the Parties, COP26, in Glasgow last year. The idea promotes an environmentally conscious lifestyle that focuses on ‘mindful and deliberate utilisation’ instead of ‘mindless and destructive consumption.’
