EUROPE PROJECT

The project "European Humanism in the Making"

Inspired by Pope Francis’ call to "the soul of Europe" (Charlemagne Prize 2016), the EFCU has since 2015 started a vast project aimed at reconsidering the pillars of European humanism on a moral, religious, philosophical, anthropological, historical, scientific than political levels. The project is entitled "European humanism in the making". Reinterpreting Christian ethics in all fields of culture, thought, art, democracy, diplomacy or economics, 13 universities develop course modules that question, among other things, themes such as that: European conscience, extremism, violence, crises, poverty, hope.

This program, bringing together experts from different European backgrounds, is intended, in its final phase, to awaken the consciousness of the students who are members of the federation’s universities on the major issues of European humanism.
