Ambassador Ruchira Kamboj impressed upon the concept of LiFE, propounded by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, which focuses on mindful and deliberate utilisation instead of mindless and destructive consumption.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched the Mission LiFE movement (Lifestyle for the Environment) at the Statue of Unity in Gujarat in October last year.
First proposed by the Prime Minister at COP 26, Mission LiFE is envisioned as an India-led global mass movement that will nudge individual and collective action to protect and preserve the environment. (ANI)
