The Economy of Communion North American Association organizes the:

2017 EOC Summer School & Annual Meeting

Building an Economy of  Communion. A new vision for the Economy and Business

Eoc logoIn today’s world, globalization presents to us significant challenges such as poverty, inequality, unemployment, and forced migration… All these situations make us question if this is the world we want and if the economy can change for the better.

The Economy of Communion project (EOC) offers a new perspective facing these challenges: a new business culture where free enterprises become the cradle of a culture of giving, that fosters fraternity, social bonds, sustainability, and communion, rather than individualism and profit as an end in itself.

“Economy and communion. These are two words that contemporary culture keeps 170204 Udienza Papa 05 ridseparate and often considers opposites. By introducing into the economy the good seed of communion, you have begun a profound change in the way of seeing and living business. Business is not only capable of destroying communion among people, but can edify it and promote it.”
                                     
– Pope Francis to EoC members, Feb 4th 2017
