ACTION 8: REPORT ON THE IMPACT
At the end of the event, a Report on the Impact will be made that will provide an overview of what has been achieved, and which might be useful to other organizers of church events. In this report, we will account for both the actions aimed at reducing emissions as well as the follow-up actions to reduce the effects of the emissions produced.
This initiative is meant to signify the commitment to the care of the common home that will not end with the event, but will continue thereafter. On these pages, we will continue to give an update on integral ecology practices as they come to fruition.
Through these best practices, we want to signify and convey the urgent message that there can be no future without caring for our common home.
It is a caring that begins with small daily actions, with informed choices that lead to a judicious and responsible consumption of resources, to the promotion of a circular economic system that values the material and encourages its reuse.
Of no less importance is the adoption of an ethical model of finance, which is far from abuse and speculation, and close to the upliftment of the weakest and most deprived sections of society, as the spirit of St. Francis teaches.
All of these activities were made possible by the Committee’s choices, and the support of the event’s sustainability partners.
WHAT IS LEFT TO BE DONE?
What has been described is just a first, important collective step to help reduce the effects of the climate crisis. In the report we are going to make, we will also indicate how many tons of CO2 remain to be offset, and what actions can each participant do to contribute to these mitigating actions. The experience gained by EoF shall remain as a common good, available to those who will one day be confronted with organizing an event.
