As COP27 comes to an end later this month, join us for a one-hour panel discussion focused on building a new economy rooted in care for creation. Learn about the “Economy of Francesco”, “a global gathering of young people determined to make the economy fair, sustainable, and inclusive.”
The Vatican describes the Economy of Francesco as “a different economy, one that helps people live and does not kill, that includes and does not exclude, that humanizes rather than dehumanizes, that takes care of creation and does not plunder it.”
We will hear from Catholic entrepreneurs, activists, and movement leaders who are answering Pope Francis' call to build a new, moral economy -- one that centers on the vulnerable and most marginalized and cares for creation. Panelists will share their takeaways from the recent Economy of Francesco Conference in Assisi and discuss how they are putting Laudato Si' principles into practice. There will also be space for reflection and discernment on pathways for future action.
