  • Reiterated India’s “clean, green, sustainable, and reliable” energy goals which dwell on achieving a net-zero carbon emission target by 2070.
  • Making LIFE (Lifestyle for Environment – given by the Indian PM at UNFCCC COP 26 Conference) into a mass movement can be a strong foundation for P3.
  • LIFE is a vision of a resilient and sustainable lifestyle that will come handy in dealing with the climate crisis and other unpredictable challenges of the future.
  • Throwaway culture and consumerism has enhanced the climate challenge.

Challenges:
