Economy of Francesco - Virtual

Thursday, November 19, 2020 - 16:30 to Saturday, November 21, 2020 - 16:30

Last year, Pope Francis invited “young economists and entrepreneurs” from around the world to Assisi, Italy for the “Economy of Francesco,” a gathering to envision an inclusive, sustainable economy that brings “life not death.” Now, it has been transformed into a virtual event that will be held November 19-21, 2020. 

He has issued an invitation letter for the conference, which can be found here.
