June 30, 2015 Deadline To Register And Secure Lodging At CUA. In today’s world, globalization presents to us significant challenges such us poverty, inequality, unemployment, forced migration… All these situations make us question if this is the world we want, if the economy can change for the better.

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

If you believe that you are a crucible of a new culture, if you are interested in seeing businesses and an economy where people are put at the center, we have an experience lived out by hundreds of businesses and thousands of people to share with you.
Join us at the 2015 EOC Meeting, as we increase our network in moving towards this new culture, where we become actors of visible change.

Objectives of the Meeting

•    To explore how the EOC leads to person-centered businesses and a more solidaristic economy
•    To acquire a deeper understanding of the values, culture and operating principles of 150717 19 Washington EoC Meeting 01businesses and professionals animated by EOC principles
•    To enkindle passion, enthusiasm, creativity… and understand how we can form a strong EOC network in North America
•    To work collaboratively in defining the mission of the EOC in North America for the upcoming year
 “Every economic and political theory or action must set about providing each inhabitant of the planet with the minimum wherewithal to live in dignity and freedom, with the possibility of supporting a family, educating children, praising God and developing one’s own human potential. This is the main thing; in the absence of such a vision, all economic activity is meaningless.”

The agenda of the meeting will include a mix of educational sessions, experiences and workshops.
