Pontifical Academy for Life


In October, the next General Assembly


The General Assembly of the Pontifical Academy for Life will be held from October 5 to 7, 2017, in Rome and will have the title: Accompanying Life. New responsibilities in the technological era.

As is tradition, the program calls for a Public Workshop and other work sessions reserved for Members of the Academy. Just for the complexity of the process of appointing new Members of the Academy, made necessary with the approval of the new Statute desired by Pope Francis, the Assembly, will be held next October.

The connection between human life and technology, proposed by the title, takes up and enlarges the theme originally announced, re-entering it into the contemporary cultural context, within which the present ethical challenges and the Christian proposals which the Catholic Church continuously safeguards and proclaims should be included.

In the coming weeks, the definite program and the rules of participation at the public workshop will be published.
