Appointment on 2 October, 2021 for meetings in the regional HUBs and the international online event

Two years after the publication of Pope Francis’ May 1st letter and after the event in November 2020, a new world meeting (October 2nd 2021) calls the world’s young economists and entrepreneurs to unite in the common commitment to revive the economy. At a time still wounded by the global emergency caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, the Pope’s call to live the Economy of Francesco as a vocation, a culture and a covenant resonates even more urgently.

“Dear young people, … This exercise – encountering one another aside from all legitimate differences – is the first step towards any change that can help generate a new cultural and consequently economic, political and social mentality. For you will never be able to undertake great things solely from a theoretical or individual perspective, without a spirit that drives you, without meaningful interior motivations, without a sense of belonging and rootedness that can enhance personal and communal activities”. Pope Francis

In addition to its global activities, The Economy of Francesco has inspired hundreds of initiatives and generated numerous paths of reflection and action in many countries around the world. The October 2021 event is an opportunity for young entrepreneurs, economists and changemakers from the 5 continents to meet, simultaneously, in many countries of the world to share pathways and build alliances. Initiatives that will culminate in a common and global online event, connected from Assisi. You are the Economy of Francesco: the fulfilment of Francesco’s dream depends on you.

The Economy of Francesco process is an opportunity for all young people who feel called to commit themselves to an economy attentive to the least and capable of caring for the planet, to build together a process of global change and give life to a new season of economic thought and practice. Join us, join The Economy of Francesco

Let’s start preparing for the new world meeting on October 2nd, 2021, while waiting to meet Pope Francis in person in Assisi in the autumn of 2022.
