We are living in a difficult season with challenges that put the future of our civilization at risk

Today more than ever we are called to face climatic, economic and social challenges to guarantee people equal dignity and the possibility of having a generative and meaningful life: economic thought and research must overcome barriers and open new paths in academic culture and not, and by engaging in the development of our societies, contribute more to providing indications for solidarity, inclusive and fair growth.

In part it is already happening, but we need a more convinced participation in this process.
We need to fully grasp the potential of individual and collective actions and policy recipes by sharing a few but significant indications, which, like a lighthouse, guide us in the development process against injustice and inequality.

This is why the Manifesto for the New Economy: 5 strategic points to sign, share and use as a reference.

This is why the Lesson “Introduction to Civil Economy and integral sustainability”: a synthesis of the concepts that underlie fair and inclusive development for the education of everyone, young and old.
