The ECPF and MEP Peter van Dalen (ChristenUnie/ECR) invite you warmly to attend the Conference ‘Values; Foundations for Europe’s economy’. This conference will take place at 7 June in the European Parliament in Brussels in the ‘Altiero Spinelli’, conference room A5E-2.

One of the goals of the ECPF is to present new and challenging alternatives to the existing ideas in culture and economy. Many thinkers have pointed to the moral failures in our current economic thinking as a major cause of this crisis. This conference aims to show the relevance and need of values as foundations for the future of Europe’s economy. Based on this foundation speakers will reflect on the question how human relations, society and economy relate to one another and which economical paradigm will really help our societies and families.

Given the increasing European involvement in directing economic policy at European and national level it is fitting that this vision is presented in the European Parliament.  As ECPF we welcome that a number of highly qualified speakers will shed their light on this theme and give direction on how to develop a vision that can become a basis for economic policies in a European and global economy.

Speakers at this conference are: Dr. Philip Blond (UK, ResPublica (writer 'Red Tory')), Dr. Tomáš Sedláček (writer of ‘economics of good and evil’), Dr. Michael Schluter (UK, Relationships Global), Peter Briscoe (Crown), Prof. Dr. Luigino Bruni (University of Milan) and Prof. Dr. Peter Ester (Dutch Senator).
