Melbourne, Australia: Join us for an evening of dialogue over a shared meal about:

Economy of Communion

Abbotsford Convent garden ridMonday 24 August 2015, 6.30pm – 9.00pm
Ironing Room,
Abbotsford Convent  
1-3 St Heliers Street,
Abbotsford VIC 3067 

We will explore another way of doing business which is already being lived out by some 850 businesses in 60 countries: in businesses taking many different forms, but all fundamentally oriented towards promoting a ‘culture of giving’, where profit is not an end in itself and a portion of profits are shared with those in need.

The Economy of Communion (E0C)  offers such a model, one that recognises the preeminent dignity of the human person whilst upholding the principles of the right to property ownership and fair reward for private initiative. And receiving takes on the same value as giving.
