Season of Creation: Synod of Bishops Gets Involved

On the eve of the publication of a ‘new’ Laudato sì, the General Secretariat of the Synod intends to make its contribution to the conservation of creation by choices that will offset the residual CO2 emissions produced by the upcoming XVI General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops.

Through the financial support of the SOS Planet Foundation and the technical contribution of LifeGate, already tested at the 2019 Synod Assembly, part of the remaining CO2 emissions will be offset thanks to projects that will generate a carbon ‘credit”‘ thus balancing the accumulated ‘debt.’

The project chosen to compensate emissions, which responds to the criterion of integral ecology as proposed by the encyclical Laudato sì, brings together the ecological aspect, attention to the local area and concrete help for the lives of the populations involved. The identified project, implemented in Nigeria and Kenya, aims to disseminate efficient cooking stoves and water purification technologies to households, communities and institutions.
