PM Narendra Modi delivered the keynote address, virtually at a LiFE initiative titled ‘How Behavioral Change can Tackle Climate Change’ at the World Bank on Friday. Detailing the viewpoints of India on the subject, PM Narendra Modi said one of the most powerful ways to fight climate change is a behavioural change that must begin at every home.
PM Modi was delivering the keynote address, virtually at a LiFE initiative at the World Bank.
PM Modi said, “Climate change cannot be fought from conference tables alone, it has to be fought from the dinner tables in every home. When an idea moves from discussion tables to dinner tables, it becomes a mass movement. Making every family and every individual aware that their choices can help the planet can provide scale and speed.”
PM Modi said, “Mission LiFE is about democratizing the battle against climate change. Then people become conscious that simple acts in their daily lives are powerful, there will be a very positive impact on the environment.”
PM Modi’s remarks got together global leaders to advance new ideas, insight and solutions to the biggest challenges facing the future of energy, environment and climate. He also lauded the efforts put in by the people of India, citing examples of behaviour change that have made an impact.
World Bank Chief David Malpass was also present at the event. He said, “Great to hear from @NarendraModi today on India’s LiFE initiative focusing on the relationship between communities & their environment.”
