In the afternoon session, we will hear about the long-term plans for the future of the Catholic Church and the European Union from two esteemed speakers, and then we will work in small groups to exchange ideas and dreams on what future we want to see, are ready to build and are already working on. Working collaboratively and exchanging points of view we will find inspiration on how to be agents of change, together. 

Keywords from the presentations and workshops will be captured live in beautiful illustrations by artist Zsofi Lang.
