EoF Global Event 2 October 2021

Poster for the Economy of Francesco London Hub on 2 October 2021

On Saturday, 2nd October, young adults from 130 countries around the world are coming together as the Economy of Francesco to build an inclusive and sustainable economy that works for all. We’re hosting a local event in London – and it is an opportunity to make friends with other young adults to build an economy that is inclusive, human-centred and cares for the environment. We will run a group activity in the morning and participate in the global broadcast from Assisi in the afternoon. The event is open to all, regardless of faith, belief or occupation. Participation is free.

Date: Saturday 2 October 2021

Time: 10:30-17:00

Venue: St Mary Moorfields, 4-5 Eldon St, London EC2M 7LS

Programme

Our rough programme is as follows:

10:00-10:30 Arrival and coffee
10.30-11.00 Kick-off and introductions
11.00-12.15 Local workshop (details below)
12.30-16.30 Lunch and broadcast from Assisi
17:00 Vigil Mass to conclude the Season of Creation

The workshop, led by Dr. Roberto Pasqualino from Anglia Ruskin University, will explore the concept of self-reinforcing socio-economic forces that operate as catalyst or threat to social change. We will apply the concept using the themes of the Economy of Francesco.

The group will be invited to reflect together on finding those forces and synergies to help system change for the better. The outputs of the group activity will be shared with the wider EoF global community in the afternoon.

About the EoF UK Hub

Following the Economy of Francesco 2020 event, the Economy of Francesco United Kingdom Hub is working on visionary, inspiring, local, practical projects inspired by the Economy of Francesco.

We have formed two working groups exploring:

  1. practical actions we can take in our local community in London and elsewhere in the United Kingdom; and
  2. a research paper bridging the theological and scientific perspectives around climate justice and sustainability.
