On July 8, 2018, at the invitation of Catholic Relief Services and the Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development, impact investing experts and Catholic leaders from around the world will convene in Rome to share and evaluate blended finance models and investible vehicles to address systemic challenges of great importance to both the Catholic Church and the global community: Climate Change, Health, Migrants and Refugees, and Youth Unemployment. It will be a results-oriented conference that catalyzes collaboration among participants, mobilizes capital, and generates select commitments-to-action. The biennial series of Vatican Impact Investing Conferences is a vital, long-term global platform around Pope Francis's vision of 'putting the economy at the services of peoples'.
The Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development expresses the Holy See's concern for issues of justice and peace, including those related to migration, health, charitable works and the care of creation.
