The 12 “EoF Villages” represent the working sessions of the participants on key topics of the economy of today and tomorrow. This is the place of crossroads and paths, dialogue and confrontation, questions and perspectives, reflections and proposals.

The EoF BOARD is the team that coordinates the activities promoted by the organizing committee, the scientific committee and that supports the work of the Villages and territorial initiatives. Here you will find the main proposals, open to our community but also to all those souls who feel close to the spirit of EoF.

What’s going on locally, what was born from the meetings and after the November event, particular stories of a territory, perspectives, requests, best practices, projects, work-in-progress initiatives, shared paths and local proposals for today & tomorrow’s new economy.

Living The Economy of Francesco events are proposals inspired by The Economy of Francesco life. These are initiatives organized at the regional or local level (in presence or online) in the form of workshops, laboratories, study seminars, conferences, round tables, calls for action and much more.

The EoF Story

May 1, 2021

May 1, 2019. An initiative close to my heart. Pope Francis' letter in which he calls together those who are training and beginning to study and practice a different economy today: young entrepreneurs, researchers, economists, changemakers. Go to the Letter
the response

The Response: 3000 applications from 120 countries.

The young people were engaged in economics, management, philosophy, sociology, theology, environmental protection, natural resources, responsible consumption and lifestyles, production, innovation, work, finance, investment for development, poverty, equality and human dignity, education and the new generations, artificial intelligence and new technologies.

To date, a very rich motivational and professional repertoire has been collected, which would merit itself an “in-depth study” of the actions of young people in different geographical areas, in favour of their own social context and at the same time of the whole humanity.
March 2020

March 2020. The COVID-19 emergency spreads in Italy and around the world, keeping on hold the process.

“We were ready to meet in Assisi: 2,000 young economists and entrepreneurs from all over the world. Then came the pandemic. But we didn't stop, we couldn't! We intensified our commitment and initiatives”

The event has been postponed to November 2020 and switched to online.

MEET THE PEOPLE

“Your universities, your businesses and your organizations are workshops of hope for creating new ways of understanding the economy and progress, for combating the culture of waste, for giving voice to those who have none and for proposing new styles of life.” (Letter of the Holy Father May 1, 2019 – “to Young Economists and Entrepreneurs Worldwide”)

The EoF community is mainly made up of stories. Young entrepreneurs, researchers and changemakers building pieces of a different present and future, every day.

Watch the STORIES

FATIMA 

Fatima Alwardi, from Iraq, tells us how conflicts and war overshadow the development of her country. For her, being part of EoF means being able to delve deeper into the major economic issues and meet more young people with whom the exchange of ideas is enriched.

SOHAN

This is how Sohan Patrick, from Sri Lanka, describes the process and development of this movement of young economists, entrepreneurs and change-makers.

FINAL STATEMENT and COMMON COMMITMENT

The work and commitment of the EoF young people has resulted in a declaration, which expresses in 12 points both a personal commitment and an appeal to citizens, institutions, and companies all over the world. At the end of the November 2020 event, 12 young people from 12 countries representing the 12 EoF villages read the Final Statement and Common Commitment EoF.

EoF. “In Assisi there will be the Expo of Francesco. The economy of the Pope has taken root”

October 19th, 2021|Categories: EoF PEOPLE, Main Stage, News, WHAT'S ON|Tags: , |

An article of Sept. 24: Five hundred million years ago, they made an irrevocable choice: they stayed put. They took root, and not in a figurative sense. Anchored to the ground, they could not escape the attacks of predators or the blows of environmental disasters. The plants, however, have made of this apparent fragility, their strength.
