The Call of Assisi: Towards a New Economy


Location: Video Conference

Economy Of Francesco

Join a virtual conversation in anticipation of the Economy of Francesco, a global gathering convened by Pope Francis in Assisi, Italy March 26 – 28, 2020 to inspire a new economy rooted in solidarity and care for our common home. This two-hour video conference is hosted by a group of U.S. – based practitioners and students of new economic models that are the fruit of a culture of communion and solidarity. The video conference is animated by Pope Francis’ call to action to “enter into a ‘covenant’ to change today’s economy and to give a soul to the economy of tomorrow.”

The program will include:

  • Opening Prayer
  • Opening remarks by practioners of the sharing economy
  • Breakout Sessions
  • Discussion of next steps in anticipation of Pope Francis' gathering in March
  • Closing Prayer
