The Mediterranean School of Civil Economy and Economy of Communion is Underway

Promoted by the Archdiocese of Crotone - St. Severina, in collaboration with the Economy of Communion and the support of the Review and Organization Committee of Settimana Sociali dei Cattolici Italiani

The Mediterranean School of Civil Economy and Economy of Communion is Underway

With the convention, "Good wins - Forming oneself through signs that make dreams come true", held last June 5, 2010, in conference hall of Crotone´s Chamber of Commerce, the Mediterranean School of Civil Economy and Economy of Communion became a reality. Around 150 people coming from different parts of Calabria and Sicily took part in the meeting.

The school was strongly encouraged by His Excellency, Mgsr. Domenico Graziani, Archbishop of Crotone - Santa. Severina. It aims at contributing to people´s formation in the culture and governance of businesses and idealistically motivated organizations - those organizations, associations, NGOs, businesses in which the inspiring motive (or that which inspired its creation) is neither primarily profit nor exclusively instrumental elements but an ideal motive, a mission or a "vocation" that, in various ways, arises from the intrinsic motivations of its promoters. It´s a project that considers profit "and instrument for bringing about human and social goals" (Benedict XVI, CIV n.46) and promoting the business as protagonist in creating the common good.
