Faith, justice, peace and reconciliation
Within CARF, the platform called “Bâtisseurs de la Paix” (Builders
of Peace) specializes in strategic research for lasting peace. Through shared
dialogue, the different social actors are given the chance to look for avenues
to stabilize and consolidate the structures of the State.
The “Motivational Talks” focus on the aspects of sustainable
development and solidarity, cornerstones of true peace. These are monthly
meetings aimed at young people, students or job seekers with the goal of
sharing experiences and learning. There is a wide variety of conferences and
seminars: film forums, morning business meetings, fashion and style shows, art
and music workshops.
The so-called “CARF Forum,” another activity of this department, is
an annual meeting on current issues open to business men and women, public and
private companies, scientists and students who wish to boost the effectiveness
of their discussions.
In this context, there are also proposals directed towards the art
of spiritual discernment, within the framework of socio-political and
theological stimulation, as a path to social liberation.
Through CARF’s “House of Sustainable
Development,” particular importance is placed on ecology: a sustainable
development at the local and global levels is sought, which integrates justice
by constantly moving towards a more ecological and brotherly society. In so doing,
CARF collaborates in the harmonious growth of associative movements, political
bodies and businesses. Courses in economics (accounting, entrepreneurship and
business management, ethics and leadership), communication (English, computer
science), civic culture (civility, elections, democratic processes) and
Ignatian pedagogy are made available as part of the training offer.
