In the summer of 2016, I received the special invitation to come for a brief working period into Assisi.
Assisi is best known as the birthplace of St. Francis of Assisi, the Patron Saint of Italy, of Ecology, Founder of the Franciscan Order, and one of the most popular Saints in the Catholic Church.
Assisi is also the place where in 1986- the world’s first inter-religious peace prayers were being held. : the birth of the spirit of Assisi.- of Peace and All Good.
Assisi is now also known, and connected with Pope Francis, who has given name to his Papacy and received inspiration from St. Francis.
I was here to design, author and/or co-create some new thoughts and bridges between the spirit of Assisi and the words of Pope Francis Encyclical Laudato Si! with that of our modern world and days of Energy and the UN Sustainable Development Agenda.
To see some new opportunities for our leadership ways- yet un-explored- in and between ourselves and in our human talent and global leadership development programs.
To see some new bridges between the lessons from Laudato Si! (Pope Francis) for our modern days business and government leadership.
In essence, the invitation we have today is to see to blend our consciousness and care for deep Peace, deep humanity and deep ecology with our more mainstream economics and politics- at play.
As a start for our open conversation and some possibility thinking, I have drafted a first outline publication- with the title and theme: Tales of Conversion – for leaders in Business and Governments
