Lifestyle for the Environment (LiFE) Movement
The most significant problems that the world and humanity are currently facing are climate change and global warming. Mission LiFE makes the battle against climate change democratic by requiring everyone to contribute, according to the ability they have available to them.
India has launched a global program known as Mission Living with the intention of assisting the rest of the world in its fight against climate change and paving the way toward a more environmentally friendly way of life in order to accomplish the United Nations’ sustainable development goals.
According to a statement released by the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO), Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision for Mission LiFE is for it to become a global mass movement that is led by India that would encourage both individual and collective action to conserve and preserve the environment.
It is significant since Gujarat was the first state in the country to begin efforts in the direction of renewable energy and climate protection, which makes the launch of Mission LiFE in Gujarat particularly noteworthy. Whether it is the installation of solar panels on canals or the launch of water conservation initiatives in drought-stricken areas of the state, Gujarat has always been a pioneer and an innovator in India.
The widespread belief is that addressing climate change is primarily a policy-related challenge. It leads to a line of thinking that believes this extremely significant problem should only be addressed by the government or international organizations. People are seeing the effects of climate change in their surroundings, and over the course of the last few decades, people have seen unanticipated disasters. This makes it very evident that the issue of climate change extends beyond the realm of policymaking, and that people themselves are coming to the realization that they should contribute to the environment on an individual, family, and community level.
Our Role in Protecting the Environment
The slogan “Lifestyle for Environment” serves as the mission’s guiding principle. “It educates people on how to make better use of the land and unites the energies of the people to better safeguard it. In addition, Mission LiFE emphasizes the fight against climate change by allowing people of all ages and backgrounds to contribute in whichever way they see fit. This motivates people to take whatever steps they can in their day-to-day lives to reduce the impact on this natural world. It holds the belief that if we make certain adjustments to the way we live, we can help safeguard the environment.
The Concept of “Reduce, Reuse and Recycle”
For many years, the principles of “Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle” as well as circular economy have been embedded in the way of life in India. These kinds of activities are common, and they motivate us to live in concordance with the natural world. Mission LiFE will incorporate every way of life that is connected to the preservation of natural resources, including those ways of life that were practiced by our ancestors and those ways of life that can be incorporated into our way of life today.
India is determined in its mission to combat the peril posed by climate change. According to World Statistics, in comparison to the global average of 4 tons of carbon emissions produced each year per person, our country’s yearly per capita carbon footprint is just about 1.5 tons! The amount of renewable energy that can be produced in India is the fourth highest in the world. We stand in fourth place in the category of wind energy and in fifth place in the category of solar energy.
The capacity of India’s renewable energy sources has expanded by around 290 percent over the past seven to eight years. In addition, we beat the deadline by nine years and accomplished our goal of deriving 40 percent of our electrical capacity from sources other than fossil fuels. We were also successful in meeting our goal of incorporating 10 percent ethanol into gasoline, and we did it five months in advance of the deadline.
India has taken steps toward developing an energy source that is less harmful to the surrounding ecosystem as part of its National Hydrogen Mission. This will assist India and a great number of other countries in the world in accomplishing their objective of becoming net zero.
Taking a look at the three R’s of waste management
The three R’s of waste management are reduced, reuse, and recycle.
- Reduce: Simply lowering the quantity of waste we produce
- Reuse: Finding new applications for objects that would have been discarded in other circumstances.
- Recycle: To transform something worn out and unusable, such as used milk jugs made of plastic, into something fresh and practical (like picnic benches, playground equipment, and recycling bins).
Everyone, both as individuals and as members of communities, has the ability to and is obligated to contribute to the solution in order to save our planet and secure our common future. After all, overconsumption is the primary cause of the triple disaster we are facing in the world, which is comprised of climate change, the loss of biodiversity, and pollution. To maintain the standard of living that we do, we require the resources of around 1.6 planet on earth. This enormous waste is made even worse by the enormous difference in wealth.
An environmentally conscious way of living that emphasizes “mindful and intentional utilization” rather than “mindless and wasteful consumption” is what this concept is trying to get across to people.
