Travel Sustainability with LEPTON Charity


Paving sustainable roads towards a Better Future with Lepton Camino

Now it’s time to harness the power and potential of religious tourism to make a positive difference in the world”, United Nations World Tourism Organisation

The ancient pilgrim route of Santiago de Compostella reports an annual 10 % increase in numbers. More than ever we face a common challenge – to protect natural and cultural heritage. It can be achieved through the reconnection of human beings with their environment and culture. One of the first steps towards it is to provide sustainable mobility opportunities. Due to the length of the route, it can be complicated for EV-owners to visit all the key locations of Santiago de Compostella. However, we have a strong belief that by joint forces we can make a difference, as Klaus Schwab said, “…the accent should be on working together and generating an impact. And only the credibility of your working together comes from achieving results”

Thus, there is nothing impossible especially if it concerns sustainable development goals achievement.

With the announcement by the government that the sale of new petrol and diesel cars will be banned by 2030, many people are looking to get ahead of the change and help minimize their carbon footprint through the use of electric vehicles (or EVs). Our mission is to enable zero-emission travel and accelerate Ev infrastructure growth. By offering EV charging stations, we give people strong motivation to transform their state of mind. In Laudato Si’, Pope Francis calls us to undergo an ecological conversion. But what is an ecological conversion?

Laudato Si’ Movement defines ecological conversion as the “transformation of hearts and minds toward greater love of God, each other, and creation. It is a process of acknowledging our contribution to the social and ecological crisis and acting in ways that nurture communion: healing and renewing our common home.”

This program intends to support the use and uptake of electric vehicles within the NZ charitable sector; leading to positive outcomes relating to decarbonization. Our aim consists in EV charger installation in all key places on the road of Santiago de Compostella (see an interactive map).

As installing Charging Stations requires a special understanding that can only be gained from specific qualifications and courses, we insist that all installations are carried out by our regional installation partners.
