The appointment with the Pope will not be a traditional convention, but an experience where theory and practice intersect to build new ideas and collaborations. A meeting, that of March 2020, which starts from the proposals and the work of young people where time slows down to make room for reflection and silence. Workshops, artistic and plenary events with the most famous economists, experts in sustainable development, entrepreneurs and entrepreneurs who today are engaged worldwide in a different economy and will reflect and work together with young people.
Nobel Prize winners Muhammad Yunus and Amarthya Sen have already confirmed their presence at The Economy of Francesco. And, among others, Bruno Frey, Tony Meloto, Carlo Petrini, Kate Raworth, Jeffrey Sachs, Vandana Shiva, and Stefano Zamagni.
Tightening with young people, beyond the differences of beliefs and nationalities, a pact to change the current economy and give a soul to that of tomorrow because it is more just, sustainable and with a new protagonism of those who today are excluded.
