On May 17th and 18th the JPIC Office hosted webinars in English and Spanish on sustainable event planning. Around 60 people participated in these webinars including many participants from our various CCVI sponsored ministries and institutions. These webinars were in line with our congregational goal of ensuring at least 50% of all materials and food/drink items used in meetings and events are environmentally friendly.
Content of the webinar included a brief review of the corporate action for the care of creation and then a concrete list of how to know if you are planning a sustainable event. Participants were able to reflect on what they are already doing and share ideas about ways to improve. We are grateful for all that is already happening throughout the Congregation and our institutions, and will continue to support one another in hosting even more sustainable meetings and events!
