Care as a work of value: new cultural perspectives of work activity.

Every woman and man on the earth is called to take care of creation. People provide necessary care for each other, they care for (and harm) the earth, and they can “take care” through their work. Thus, work needs to be taken care of through an “integral human ecology” perspective, as Pope Francis asks of us. This village aims at exploring both work and care and the possibility that they can develop together, in the context of the profound technological, social and regulatory transformations that we are experiencing. We seek to find ways to work and care that honour our responsibility to love and respect one another and all of creation.


We firmly believe that through work we are enabled to participate in God’s creation by fulfilling ourselves within our communities. We ask for a new culture of work that prioritizes people’s dignity, acknowledges the contribution of each worker, generates shared economic value, breaking in-work poverty.
