As part of the CCI international plan to observe New Pentecost 2018 with the theme 'Ecology', Cardijn Community India (CCI) is organising the Symposium in Pune.
A detailed study of Pope Francis's encyclical on environment, 'Laudato Si' with detailed explanation by Fr. Rayappa Kasi, renowned Ecologist is planned for Pentecost Sunday, May 20 this year.
Bishop Thomas Dabre, Bishop of Pune will inaugurate the one day Ecological Symposium with the theme "Let's care for our common home".
It is to be noted that CCI from its inception has declared 'harmony between humanity and nature' as one of its mission goals and has been promoting 'ecological education'.
The symposium is open to all the people of Pune irrespective of their faith.
Members of Pune chapter of Cardijn Community India are working towards making this a landmark event in Pune.
We expect all lay organisations in Pune to extend their solidarity to this event.
All nature lovers, environmentalists and ecologists in and around Pune are requested to partner with CCI Pune in this endeavour to sensitise the people of Pune on the need to protect creation.
