Emmaus International

“In favor of an intellectual insurrection, for justice and against the absurd.”  The call of the declaration of the World Assembly 2016 in Jesolo is a reflection of the Emmaus International Movement’s values.

The Jesolo Declaration on Friday April 22nd brings a week rich in discussions, debates, ideas, and exchange about the future action plan of Emmaus International to a close. It expresses the movement’s will to “continue the fight against misery and for the rights of the most vulnerable, calling on both citizens and civil society organizations.”
The declaration is a universal call made in solidarity. It clearly affirms the movement’s will:  “together, we ask that people stop acting only amongst themselves – that they gravitate towards the lively forces that are fighting against the causes of poverty everywhere in the world.”
