This online event is an initiative launched by the International Commission for Formation, chaired by our member Marisa Téllez (Spain). The goal of this webinar is to to present and to discuss proposals that will enhance the Society’s global ministry, especially in light of the fact that many of our Conferences, Councils and charitable works have been adversely effected by the pandemic.
Marisa Téllez, who will also be the moderator of this event, stated: In addition to the health crisis, the pandemic has increased social and economic inequalities. SSVP members need to prepare themselves for a post-pandemic world … and this will naturally entail more work and greater participation, which is the goal of this webinar: concrete ideas to tackle poverty in the years to come”.
