Project Lia was selected as one of 13 finalists of the Prophetic Economy in Practice Award 2018 from a group of 135 candidates from around the world.
The international “Prophetic Economy” event held in November 2018 at Castel Gandolfo, Italy succeeded in bringing together protagonists of change from variety of cultural and religious backgrounds, with a wide age range and diversity of sectors such as economy, ecology, education, and research.
Internationally-renowned economist Jeffrey Sachs, a keynote speaker at the event, affirmed, “Prophetic economy means an economy that operates in the vision of the prophets and that means in the vision of justice, a vision of peace, a vision of meeting the needs of the poorest people, a vision of protecting creation. We need an economy of sustainable development which means an economy in which prosperity is shared, that is socially fair and environmentally sustainable”.
The “Prophetic Economy Award” was launched to promote good practice through examples of the prophetic economy in action. Carlo Petrini, founder of the Slow Food Movement, acknowledged the award winners. “They practice a form of economic reality different from the norm, the pervasive economic modes. They are not so much prophetic in vision, as in their daily practice.”
