Without a doubt, one of the Economy of Communion’s (EoC’s) key words is “relationships”. Relational goods, reciprocity, gratuitousness, communion.These are all words that describe different ways to understand human relationships.  
In fact, the EoC can also be seen as a different culture of work relationships.This gathering will focus on the role that relationships play within a company, between the company and its local community, and between the company and the larger global community.

How is this style of business different from what is typically thought of as corporate social responsibility? How does making a business a ‘place of communion’ impact the workers, the owners and those in need that enter into relationships with the company?
We will explore all of this, and more, as we look toward the 20th anniversary of the start of the Economy of Communion in Freedom, a new global reality with over 750 participating businesses located in 50 countries.

A lifestyle of giving, of seeing each person as the focus of our actions,brings to life a method of doing business that offers hope to our world especially in these troubled economic times. The EoC has been called a prophecy for a sustainable future. Come and join us as we share the latest developments in the EoC and explore this lifestyle of giving.
