In 2021, the first fully online International Congress was held, based at the Pontifical Catholic University of Parana (Brazil) in collaboration with 20 other institutions. Then, in 2022, the International Program on Democracy, Society, and New Economies (PIDESONE) organized the second International Congress in hybrid mode at the University of Buenos Aires (Argentina), involving more than 10 institutions and civil society organizations in other different local venues (Brazil, Mexico, and Colombia).
For this third edition, the Catholic University of Colombia, La Gran Colombia University, and the Center for Historical Memory will open their doors and welcome young people from all over the Central and South American region who will participate in person or virtually, to continue co-creating an economy with a soul that knows how to listen to the cry of the earth and the poor through discussions and proposals for stable and lasting solutions. The following topics will be explored: Management&Gift, Work&Care, Business&Peace, Vocation&Profit.

The Congress will conclude on Oct. 6 with a live talk by young participants in the global event that will be broadcast from the Seraphic Institute in Assisi. Precisely on Oct. 6, another major national event will begin, that of the Italians, scheduled until Sunday, Oct. 8. More than 100 young people from all over Italy are expected at the Shrine of the Spoliation in Assisi. In short, it is a real relay race between Colombia and Italy that will pass through the whole world from 4:00 to 6:30 and will be linked to the EoF’s international YouTube channel to celebrate the annual meeting.
