“I called for a movement called LIFE – Lifestyle for Environment in Glasgow last year. This year on World Environment Day, we launched the Global initiative for LIFE campaign to encourage an eco-friendly lifestyle,” he said at the G7 Summit in Elmau, Germany on 27 June 2022.
“We can call the followers of this movement Triple-P, that is ‘Pro Planet People’, and we should all take the responsibility of increasing the number of Triple-P people in our countries. This will be our greatest contribution to the coming generations”.
