CGI’s Webinar on the Covid-19 Pandemic and the Vincentian Work for the Years to Come

Council General International

Five speakers will discuss these issues, followed by a Q&A session

Next Sunday, on May 23rd, the Council General International (CGI) is hosting a two-hour webinar “Pandemic, Poverty and Future”, starting at 1 pm (Paris’ time).

The webinar will be broadcast on Facebook’s Ozanam TV, with simultaneous interpreting into the four official languages:





Each speaker will make a 15-minute presentation, followed by a debate among speakers. Viewers will have the chance to leave comments and pose questions to speakers in real time.

This online event is an initiative launched by the International Vice Presidency for Formation, chaired by our dear fellow member Marisa Téllez (Spain). The goal of this webinar is to discuss the issues raised and to put forward proposals to enhance the SSVP’s work worldwide, whose Conferences, Councils and Charitable Works have been adversely hit by the pandemic.

“In addition to the health crisis, the pandemic has increased social and economic inequalities. SSVP members need to steel themselves for a post-pandemic world, thus entailing more work and engagement, which is ultimately the goal of this webinar: concrete ideas to tackle poverty in the years to come”, remarked Marisa Téllez, who will also be the moderator of the event.

Join in! Don’t miss this opportunity for formation, provided by the CGI.
