The 25th Hour: IV EoF (((ON AIR))) Global Event – Live from Assisi

Economy of Francesco

06/10/2023 In Person

Remote event

Next October 6th at 4 PM (Italian time), the world’s young economists, change-makers and entrepreneurs will gather online to celebrate the IV annual meeting of The Economy of Francesco (EoF). “I say this seriously: I’m counting on you!”, Pope Francis told them when he greeted them in Assisi in 2022. “Please, don’t leave us undisturbed, give us an example!” An invitation embraced by the EoF generation, who continue to work with seriousness and responsibility and without neglecting anything that is of concern today and requires urgent change. Inequalities, indigenous economies, work, peace, food security, the environmental crisis, financial systems, but also narrative and spiritual capitals – are some of the themes at the heart of the EoF agenda.

The streaming of the event, entitled “The 25th Hour. EoF (on air) Global Gathering” will be broadcast by the Seraphic Institute, through “web-radio,” and available live on the Economy of Francesco YouTube channel, in multiple languages. Music, in-depth analysis, information, and interaction via social media: this year the young authors of the program have chosen the radio as a narrative place to discuss and share stories, ideas, vocations, and experiences, reaching a wide audience, where all voices can express themselves and be represented and listened to.

Links and contributions from over 30 countries around the world are expected, moments of meditation on the path walked by Francis of Assisi and a program dedicated to historical figures and events.

The meeting will end with a new message from Pope Francis, who will once again this year address the young economists and entrepreneurs of EoF. To follow the live broadcast and details of the program, go to
