THE INVISIBLE CHOICES
Not all of the work to reduce environmental impact is so visible. There are some choices that must be demonstrated, and some activities will go beyond the event. The ongoing health crisis has changed the paradigm, thus some choices needed revision, and some will be modified in the process.
Much work has already been done, but there is still more work to be done that will require a precise and personal commitment from all those who, in any form, will take part in this truly authentic Pilgrimage of Sustainability, which will not end with the meeting with the Holy Father.
The Economy of Francesco, and its commitment to Integral Ecology, is not a one-time commitment. On these pages, we will keep you posted on the practices of integral ecology as they are gradually completed.
Through these best practices, we wish to be a sign and to transmit the urgent message that there can be no future without the care for our common home.
Such care begins with small daily actions, from informed choices that lead to a responsible and wise use of resources, to the promotion of a circulating economic system that values materials and encourages their recycling.
Equally important is the adoption of an ethical economic model, which is free from abusive and profiteering practices, and committed to supporting the weakest and most disadvantaged members of society, according to the spirit of Saint Francis.
All these activities were made possible, first of all, by the choices made by the Committee, by the existing good practices concerning the sustainability of the City of Assisi and the territory, particularly by the involvement of Project Fra’ Sole and the practical commitment of its partners.
