The objective is to build up an international leader community to pursue the truth and the wisdom, connecting the teachings of the Catholic Church with the complexity of the society in all its dimension, public and private.
Beyond all the panel regarding the freedom of expression, human rights, religions and politics, we also had free time to network with the other participants and to visit the city. “I keep with me fo my further path, the friendship with all the participant”, Fr Nils says. “It was impressive to discover how each participant taks on such a social responsability in their own countries and how they carry out their faith in their professional career”.
