At This Change of Era, We Must Care for Our Common Home

The pandemic crisis has shown that “the system that is ruling today’s economy is not the just and the right system to produce inclusive development for all,” says Fr. Fabio Baggio, Under-Secretary to the Migrants and Refugees Section. “We have an opportunity to reboot, to change the system today.”

Fr. Baggio is a member of the Holy See delegation to the Global Forum on Migration and Development Summit, which is currently underway. He hopes that Forum discussions will help governments, civil society organizations, the private sector, and youth leaders find collaborative solutions that embrace what Pope Francis has called a ‘change of epoch’.

“The future of migration is linked with the future of the economy. It is linked with the future of the care of our common home. There is no economy if we are going to destroy the world entrusted to us by God Himself.”
