The Organizing Committee of  "The Economy of Francesco" has announced at 6 p.m. today through a press release that it will shortly give detailed news regarding the preparation of the Event, which is proceeding with great commitment and enthusiasm and has aroused a lot of interest all over the world, foreseeing the participation of about 2000 young people from 115 countries.

In order to facilitate the best possible development of the initiative, given the objective difficulty that so many young people are currently experiencing in travelling internationally and nationally, the Holy Father, in agreement with the committee, has set a new date for his meeting with young people in Assisi on November 21, 2020, preceded by the already planned days of in-depth study.

On March 28th we will meet in the Papal Hall of the Sacred Convent in Assisi for a Webinar connection with the young people of the participating countries to continue the journey with even greater enthusiasm.

Luigino Bruni, Scientific Director of the event, said in a Facebook post: "Thanks to Pope Francis for the new November date. We will arrive more prepared. Young people from around the world are responding with a great sense of responsibility and the desire to commit themselves even more. From a wound a blessing can come.

We have to be realistic dreamers, and therefore live the anxieties and crises of our time, and then do everything so that 'no one less' - none of the 2000 already selected, who had already signed up and bought their tickets. It struck me not to read any complaints from young people about the postponement but just the desire to continue the race.

We've already done 230 Towards Assisi events, we'll do three hundred more in these eight months".
