A way of life – not “away” from life.

“We need to correct models of growth […] guaranteeing respect for the environment, openness to life, concern for the  family, social equality, dignity of workers and the rights of future generations.” In these words, Pope Francis asks for more responsible behaviour in terms of consumption, production and decision-making with the aim of ensuring a worthwhile life for everyone. We discuss and experience the contribution each one of us – whether citizen, company, organization, politician, etc – to combat the culture of waste and propose new ways of life. This is linked intimately to the debate regarding measurement of wealth and well-being.


We, as people, families, communities, and citizens of the world, believe that “we cannot make ourselves happy without making others happy as well” and that we can only achieve this by adopting new metrics for the common good and by encouraging civil institutions to provide the time and space necessary to build meaningful relations.
