Online: Wealth through sharing?
Thu 5 November 2020, 19:30 - 21:30
On November, St. Martin’s Day, we meet each other online for a dialogue on Wealth through sharing. How do you share what you have or need, and what does that bring you and others? Rich, poor, young, old and everyone in between who wants to share an experience and is curious about the stories of others is very welcome!
Wealth through sharing?
Sint Maarten, the patron saint of Utrecht, shared his coat 1700 years ago with a beggar. Does sharing help us in today’s world on the road to a more balanced society, across the borders of liberal economic thinking? Can we better share money (worries), goods, prosperity, and talent, so that we are richer and can give more meaning to each other? How do you share what you have or need, and what does that bring you and others? In this dialogue we share experiences, good examples of sharing, how we would like to see the future, and contribute to this in our daily lives.

St. Martin’s celebration
St. Martin is the patron saint of the city of Utrecht. The story goes that he shared his red cloak with a beggar. Sint Maarten is therefore the feast of sharing. We will celebrate this from 4 to 11 November in all kinds of places in the city and online. More information about the St. Martin’s celebration.
