The Zimbabwe Catholic Commission for the Laity (ZCCL) through the Catholic Professionals Network of Zimbabwe has launched a campaign to conserve the environment in the spirit of Laudato Si’.
As the rate of environmental degradation continues to escalate in Zimbabwe and elsewhere with serious implications on flora, fauna and marine life, humanity must take immediate action to avoid further damage to our common habitat. Pope Francis in his Encyclical Laudato Si’ says: “We need a conversation which includes everyone, since the environmental challenge we are undergoing, and its human roots, concern and affect us all.” Pope Francis’ message has inspired the Catholic Professionals Network of Zimbabwe who decided to do their bit for the environment.
