KEY POINTS

·        LiFE was launched on World Environment Day with a vision of harnessing the power of individual and collective action across the world to address the climate crisis.

·        The objective of the movement is to nudge individuals and communities to adopt simple and specific climate-friendly behaviours in their daily lifestyles.

·        For instance, an individual can carry a reusable cloth bag instead of a plastic bag; or walk short distances instead of driving; or turn off electrical appliances from the sources when not in use; or prioritise public transport wherever possible and take other similar actions.

·        LiFE plans to methodically break down this mental model by nudging the world to consume responsibly, rather than consuming less.

·        By nudging the consumption patterns of the society at scale, LiFE can also trigger a huge boost for the sustainability market.

·        Live responsibly: The Covid pandemic is a wake-up call to all of us that no matter how much technological progress we make as a global society, we all remain at the mercy of the natural world.

·        As the world moves in fits and starts towards its shared commitment to achieve ambitious climate goals, the time is ripe for India to lead the LiFE movement and mainstream it into the climate narrative.
