Francia - Plounevez-Quintin (Bretagne), 14-21/07/2013

Near the Village of Saint Joseph, in central Britain, the 2° event of the EoC Workshop

Workshop for Young People: “To Create Economy of Communion Enterprises”: 8 days together with EoC entrepreneurs from July 14 to 21, 2013

Village_St_Joseph_ridAfter the success of the first EoC Workshop held in July 2012 at Arny, the dates for the second event for summer 2013 are now available.  The workshop, in French, is aimed at young people from 22 to 35 years of age who are attracted by the entrepreneurship and creation of business activities with fraternal and altruistic ends.

The Project: to live together for a week and build business plans and projects of communal life.  How?  By daring to trust ourselves, others, and our invisible partner.   The workshop will take place in central Brittany near the Village St Joseph, a place of welcome where people wounded by life come for rehabilitation.  With them, and for them, workshop participants will put forward their talents for the creation of new enterprises for the site, starting from some specific projects, with the help of businesspeople and with the spirit of the Economy of Communion.

Change is Possible: Reflections "After School’s Conclusion"

We bring you the experience of Simona Tesini, a young Brazilian who participated in the Latin American EoC School at Recife last July.


"When I decided to leave the bank where I worked – in the legal sector where each day I dealt with debts of millions of reais – I felt a great need to dedicate myself to something more ennobling, which would contribute to build a united world, an objective I had since I was a little girl.

It is utopic, I know, but it’s this very utopia that brought my family and I to have incredible experiences and to live according to fraternity.  When I told a friend about my choice, she invited me to participate in a school for EoC entrepreneurs at Recife, last July.  It was incredible.  I felt as if I had lived ‘in a coma’ for all these years, 11 to be precise, in which I had worked in financial institutions without seeing any way out in order to change.

Summer School: Participants Wish for Continuity

After having lived an experience of strong communion during the 1st EoC International Summer School, there is a strong desire to see one another again next year in Madrid!

From our correspondent Isaias Hernando


Fado is the best known expression of Portuguese music; it expresses the little (and big) wounds of daily life in a very particular way: through melancholy, and nostalgia. “All this exists; all this is sad; all this is fado” are the words of a well-known fado that is sung at night time in Lisbon restaurants, in the light of a single candle, in a moving silence and unique atmosphere.  The interesting thing is that only Portuguese people seem able to transform wounds in a very singular way, accepting them as part of life, in song, in music, in beauty, passion, and art.  This says much about the personality of this great nation who has much to say and to give to Europe and the world.  For this reason, the program held during the last days of the Summer School foresaw some ‘outings’ in and around Abrigada: not only to hear the fado, but above all to get to know other important realities.

Bridging: a Hard Work!

Intense activities take place midweek during International  EoC Summer School “Towards a Bridging Economy”.

From our corrispondent Isaias Hernando


The deep, attentive silence is impressive: not an easy thing with 70 young people in the classroom.” Says Luigino Bruni, with a long experience as a university professor

As a matter of fact, the young participants at this Summer School can last over two hours without a sigh during high level academic sessions which require a certain concentration; then they go on after dinner to form work groups to deepen their knowledge on the topics covered, giving the best of themselves when presenting the work done.  Those involved in research projects share their ideas with the others as well.

The Gift of ‘New eyes’

The very much awaited International EoC Summer School ‘Towards a Bridging Economy’ started today in Abrigada, Portugal.

From our correspondent Isaias Hernando


The little city of Arco-Iris, laying amidst the beautiful hills of Abrigada, near Lisbon, wore her very best today in order to welcome the 70 plus participants of the EoC International Summer School, with the strongest representation made by the younger generation.

After having been greeted by the organizers, the Catholic University of Porto, the EoC Committee of Portugal and the EoC International Committee, a brief presentation of each participant was made:  very diverse young people, both in formation, culture and origin, who offered a great richness of perspectives but also of expectations of the EoC.  Diverse, yes, but with very high expectations:  not one of them made the thousand kilometer journey, spending time and money, if not to draw the most from this opportunity.

Recife: South American EoC School: open for enrollment

From 12 - 15 July, the School is open to all those interested in the EoC in all of South America

Communion, Creativity and Passion for a New Economy

Logo_Igarassu_ridThere is great movement in all of the Brazilian EoC Commission in preparation for the EoC School of South America, to be held from 12 - 15 July 2012 at Igarassu-PE. The “continental distances” are not an obstacle: technology brings everyone close and via Skype conferencing from every part of the nation, each one is a builder of this program, in deciding the particular logistics and, above all, in guaranteeing that the School be an expression of the existing reality. Many are the youth involved in all of this fervour.

The School is aimed at young adults: business people, students, scholars and professionals from all of South America. It aspires to first of all be a space to exchange ideas and experiences lived out. By “young business people,” we mean both all of those who have been part of the project in these last few years and those who are at the beginning of their business venture.
