Human Human beings do not live by economics alone – In search of the european common
Thursday, 20th of April 2023, 5 pm
The EU is one of the major projects of hope and vision initiated on our continent inthe last century. Its vision incorporates a path towards a peaceful and sustainablefuture based on overcoming divisions through dialogue and cooperation. Since itsinitiation, the primary driving force for building up the EU has been the achievementof goals that reach beyond economic prosperity. Human, social and natural capital is the precondition for achieving economic objectives. Achievement of economictargets comes often at the expense of human, social and natural capital, and leads to the breakdown of social cohesion. There is a need for reflection about how to make our policies and our politics more humane and compassionate. Faith communities have in this process an important role to play. The session invites to look at the key EU policy package outlining the commitment to achieve climateneutrality by 2050 – the European Green Deal from this perspective.
