The side event will address work of New Humanity and the International Association of the Economy of Communion and their efforts to develop and expand the economy of communion. The initial inspiration of the economy of communion came from within a global religious community in Sao Paulo, Brazil; twenty years of steady global expansion to an operating business network of over 800 companies; relationship-building, profit-sharing and redistribution; development of model industrial parks networked with an active global community; concrete examples of programs for development and poverty eradication; the spreading of a ‘culture of giving’ within economic and development ideas in academic and socially-responsible business settings.
