MISSION LiFE

 

This word is LiFE, which means ‘Lifestyle for Environment’. Today, there is a need for all of us to come together and take Lifestyle for Environment forward as a campaign. This can become a mass movement towards an environmentally conscious lifestyle.

In this context, the concept of ‘Lifestyle for Environment (LiFE) was introduced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi at COP26 in Glasgow on 1st November 2021, calling upon the global community of individuals and institutions to drive LiFE as an international mass movement towards “mindful and deliberate utilisation, instead of mindless and destructive consumption” to protect and preserve the environment. LiFE puts individual and collective duty on everyone to live a life that is in tune with Earth and does not harm it. Those who practice such a lifestyle are recognised as Pro Planet People under LiFE.

The Mission embodies the philosophy of the P3 approach, i.e., Pro Planet People, since it is founded on the fundamental principles of a ‘lifestyle of the earth, for the earth, and by the earth.’ It promotes the circular economy, arguing that the principle of ‘Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle’ may help balance progress, economic expansion, and conservation.

Changing our lifestyle, however, is not easy. Our habits are deeply ingrained in our daily lives and are continually reinforced through several elements of our environment. Translating our intention to do good for the environment is not always easy to translate into action. However, it is not impossible. By taking one action at a time and making one change daily, we can change our lifestyle and inculcate long-term environment-friendly habits. Studies suggest that practising an action for a minimum of 21 days helps make it a habit.

In that context, the LiFE 21-Day Challenge is launched to enable Indians to take one simple environment-friendly action per day for 21 days and eventually develop an environment-friendly lifestyle. It is a challenge to change one small thing in your life daily and become Pro Planet People.

Training Program on “Greenhouse gas (GHG) Inventory for Industries and Air Quality Prediction”

 

Three Day Training Program
On
“Greenhouse gas (GHG) Inventory for Industries and Air Quality Prediction”

 

March 4-6, 2016
Venue: ISM Industry Institute Interaction Facility, New Town, Kolkata.

 

We are glad to inform you that Department of Environmental Science & Engineering, Indian School of Mines, Dhanbad is organizing 3 Day Training Program on ‘Greenhouse gas (GHG) Inventory for Industries and Air Quality Prediction” during March 4-6, 2016 , 2016 at ISM Industry Institute Interaction Facility, New Town, Kolkata.


About 31% of the global carbon emission occurs due to transmission, and distribution of electricity and about 21% comes from other industries. Many actions to mitigate the present GHG scenario are being taken on global platforms. As first round commitments of Kyoto protocol, initiative was taken within the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). It strongly suggested anthropogenic sources to bring down the GHG emission 5.2% below their corresponding levels of emissions as it was in 1990 plus/minus the reduction commitment of the country. In order to comply with the global as well as national standards of GHG emission, development of emission inventory for the anthropogenic sources like energy sectors, mining industries, construction industries etc. are of utmost importance.


The aim of this training program is to provide a comprehensive knowledge towards the detailed understanding of the present scenario of GHG emission and air quality from perspective of environmental welfare and industrial development. The widely used procedures for developing GHG inventory and prediction of air quality will be discussed in depth which will be beneficial to the planners, decision makers and management personnel of different industries.


You are hereby requested to make wide circulation of this program to concerned executives, academicians, researchers, field engineers, policy makers and others to whom you feel necessary in your esteemed institution/organization.
