Zlín(Chech Republic), 10th March 2014

"From Uncontrolled Profits to the Common Good. Economy at the Service of the Person and the Common Good. Utopia or Way Out from the Crisis?" This was the title of the evening dedicated to the EoC organised by the RR 49 Youth Association, connected to the University of Tomáš Bat'a. The presentation of the EoC and, above all, the entrepreneurial experiences placed in the context of the current crisis made the project credible and achievable to the audience. On this occasion, the "company cube" was presented: it is a small but effective tool for living the EoC values together. It was a great success.

Passing through Slovakia to participate in an international conference, prof. Stefano Zamagni spent the afternoon with the Slovak EoC community and visited the EoC company InVIVO in the historical centre of the capital. "Get organised and propagate the EoC. Make alliances with other active organisations in the country and give hope and joy to people." These are some of the words with which the civil economist encouraged those present.
