In response to the call of our good Pope Francis from his encyclical, Laudato Si, the Student Catholic Action of the Philippines (SCAP) initiates a four-day national youth ecological leadership immersion known as 1st Earthkeepers’ Summit which happens to be its 80th anniversary culminating event.
Bohol has been chosen as the culminating site to recognize the Diocese of Tagbilaran’s large contributions into the life of the movement.
Consequently, the said honored diocese accepts the opportunity to host the summit this coming November 10-13, 2016 at the Immaculate Heart of Mary Seminary Compound, Taloto District, Tagbilaran City.
The 1st E-Summit hopes to gather 300 student leaders, animators, chaplains and guests across the country and some from international organizations.
The event eyes to provide a meaningful educational ecological workshop experience wherein the participants are moved to care for God’s creation especially for the poor who are most vulnerable to climate change and for the future generations who will face the worst impacts in the coming years.
More so, the summit serves as an eye opener to the youth leaders to see the adverse effects and impacts of climate change in a given community through structured programs and presentations.
Interactive workshops are designed for the participants to learn from one another and to propose earth-keeping solutions and projects that they would like to adopt at the end of the summit.
True to its mission in advocating Mother Earth stewardship, the SCAP and the Diocese of Tagbilaran invites all youth leaders to the first ever 1st Earthkeepers’ Summit.
Bearing the theme, “Taking a Closer Look at Our Common Home with a Diamond and an Oak”, the summit is one of the official post-Triduum activities of the Diamond Jubilee Celebration of the Diocese of Tagbilaran.
