    The commitment to reciprocity is an integral part of the request for a grant to take part in the event 'The Economy of Francesco'.
    With this commitment I put my skills and experience at the service of the promotion of 'The Economy of Francesco', and in support of the animation and organization of the September event. Moreover, I commit to actively contributing to develop the process for change so that tomorrow's economy may be more just, sustainable and with a new lead player who today is excluded.


    How do I commit to doing this?
