The World Youth Day Lisbon 2023 Foundation, in partnership with the Global Tree Initiative, has launched a worldwide tree-planting challenge to raise awareness of the importance of biodiversity and climate change.
With the support of the Global Tree Initiative, WYD Lisbon 2023 will offset part of the environmental footprint generated by all activities involving this organization.
The Local Organizing Committee continues to work on the development of a strategy for the sustainability of WYD Lisbon 2023. On December 8, Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the challenge started with more than 1,000 trees planted.
In addition to the Global Tree Initiative, WYD Lisbon 2023 continues to work with the Boy Scouts of the National Scout Corps and also with the help of the Laudato Si’ Movement. So that the legacy of World Youth Day Lisbon 2023 may be even more positive and lasting, the WYD Lisbon 2023 Foundation invites everyone to join this movement. All information on how to participate and make the dedication to WYD Lisbon 2023 available on the WYD website at https://lisboa2023.org/pt/plantacao-mundial-de-arvores/ .
