During HRF Annual General Meeting in Rome we celebrated a symposium leaded by Prof. Martin Slag. The content of his speech will be published soon.
Professionalism in homemaking will help build sustainable societies. What is the link between home economics and a sustainable society? There are many who would say not much. The three speakers at the Home Renaissance Foundation symposium held at the IESE Business School, Barcelona, had a lot to argue against this general consensus.
The symposium gathered a carefully selected audience of over 30 academics, lawyers, entrepreneurs, authors and home managers to examine three topics surrounding the work of the home: quality of life, policy-making and work-life balance.
The former head of PR for the Vatican under Pope John Paul II, Dr. Joaquin Navarro Valls, and Italian politician Dr. Paola Binetti addressed a group of international guests at Home Renaissance Foundation's Annual Symposium. With over thirty participants representing universities and educational institutions from around the world, the great accomplishment of the 2011 symposium has been to gather great minds and enthusiasts in an event geared to propel the Foundation forward for the next few years.
The workshop linked the charity with similar organisations from other countries and enabled participants, who were from France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, the UK and the USA, to understand the charity's vision in greater depth. Experts from the fields of anthropology, home management, communication and marketing took part in the seminar.
