More than 25,000 Lifestyle for Environment-related events take place across the country mobilizing individuals to take pro-planet actions

Mission LiFE (Lifestyle for Environment) was launched by Hon’ble Prime Minister on 20 October 2022 at Kevadia, Gujarat. Mission LiFE focuses on bringing about behaviour changes in individuals for combatting climate change. The objective is a global movement for transitioning from a model of destructive and mindless consumption to deliberate and mindful utilization of resources.

The Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change is the nodal ministry for national-level coordination and implementation of Mission Lifestyle for Environment. As part of their implementation efforts, the MoEFCC has mobilized Central Ministries, State Governments, Institutions, and private organizations to align their activities with LiFE and spread awareness about the sustainable actions that individuals can undertake. Activities such as street play competitions, painting competitions, essay writing competitions, etc. are being carried out with a focus on sustainability, at district, state, and national levels under the banner of LiFE.
