New Humanity’s Economic Vision, presented at The World Bank
18 April 2017, Washington
EoC at The World Bank Civil Society Policy Forum (CSPF)
For the first time, New Humanity takes part in an event sponsored by The World Bank Group, with the purpose of presenting the Economy of Communion project as a model and tool for social development.
The New Humanity speaker was Mr. Nicola Sanna, CEO at RiskLens, President of the FAIR Institute and member of the Economy of Communion North American committee.
The presentation focused on some concrete examples of initiatives that the Economy of Communion – an expression of the New Humanity vision in the economic field – promotes in the world, to favor social development and a fairer and more fraternal world.
The audience included more than fifty people, representing different NGOs from all over the world, as well as World Bank, International Monetary Fund (IMF) and Bretton Woods Project insiders.
At the end of the presentation, several of them wanted to know more details on the initiative.
The day before, the New Humanity representatives, together with representatives from other faith-based organizazions, participated in a session promoted by the World Bank office responsible for working with faith-based organizazions in initiatives aimed at implementing the millennium development goals # 1 (Eradicate Extreme Poverty and Hunger ) and #10 (Develop a Global Partnership for Development). The office is looking for good practices able to contribute to the solution of Extreme Poverty.
New Humanity and other faith-based organizations are regarded as great intermediaries between the World Bank and the civil society. In particular, the Economy of Communion project is seen as an excellent example capable of producing concrete results in the eradication of poverty.
