The Economy of Francesco non è solo un evento.

È prima di tutto un processo, la possibilità per giovani imprenditori, changemakers ed economisti di tutto il mondo di potersi conoscere, confrontare ed esprimersi sui grandi temi dell’economia globale.

Questa è la community, questa è The Economy of Francesco.

C’è un pensiero dei giovani sulle questioni ambientali ed economiche che va preso molto sul serio.

C’è troppo bisogno di una economia di Francesco oggi, e soltanto i giovani la possono realizzare.

The EoF SCHOOL – frontiers

RETHINKING ECONOMICS STARTING FROM THE COMMONS

(ENGLISH TEXT ONLY)

The Economy of Francesco School is an online advanced training course on the topics of the Economy of Francesco. Guests of the EoF school will be outstanding persons from academia, the world of business and society. Each speaker will be followed by respondents chosen among the young participants of the Economy of Francesco.

WHAT IF?

What would happen if the courses of Economics taught in the Universities focused their attention on the topics of the commons rather than on private goods? What if the formers become the main object of study and the latter the exception for the economic science? What if the social business, rather than being considered a ‘hybrid’ form of business, becomes the normal approach, and the ethical and green finance rules over the financial sector? Is it possible to move away from the primacy of the consumers to the preeminence of ethical consumers who expresses with their daily choices their preferences for an inclusive, sustainable and workers-friendly economic system?

INSIGHTS

Today, in fact, we have a new certainty: when it comes to the safeguard and custody of the Earth, to commons and relational goods, capitalism does not work. Its rationality based on the search for individual well-being does not know how take care of the planet, of the goods and of human relationships. If we continuously feel that we are owners and masters of the Earth we will only continue to destroy them. The sooner we learn how to use those goods without owning them, the better we become custodians of our only Earth.

In the year 2021, the Economy of Francesco (EoF) offers an advanced online course called “The Economy of Francesco School” to explore Pope Francis’s thought, Franciscan economic roots and institutions, and some of the topics which grounded the EoF Villages. Knowledge, we believe, is one of the most important common goods we should share if we want to improve our lives together. The course will move between the realms of the already and not yet, meaning that it will offer high formation on the conceptual and practical pillars of the Economy of Francesco while remaining open to new perspectives.

Le vostre università, le vostre imprese, le vostre organizzazioni sono cantieri di speranza per costruire altri modi di intendere l’economia e il progresso, per combattere la cultura dello scarto, per dare voce a chi non ne ha, per proporre nuovi stili di vita.

FOCUS ON

Julie Nelson all’EoF School

Il 24 marzo l’Economy of Francesco ha incontrato Julie Nelson nella sua School. Il dialogo su questi temi è stato arricchito dalla presenza di tre giovani interlocutrici: Serena, dal villaggio CO2 delle Disuguaglianze; Olena, del villaggio Donne per l’Economia e Tracey, dal villaggio Lavoro e Cura. I nomi dei villaggi parlano ancor prima delle protagoniste del dialogo.
