What is People7.0?
It is a Inter-European division-wide Summit with the purpose to bring together people from all EUD regions, to share ideas, experiences and challenges and, hopefully, allow them to find inspiration, motivation and maybe answers. People 7.0 is meant to connect in a common ground Children’s, Families’ and Women’s Ministries that most of the time are working for the same group of people allowing them to share their skills and dreams. The idea is that we should not think only in our own “garden” (department/ministry) but find ways to work also as a team to try to respond to the needs and concerns of our present generation.
Why have we felt the need to create this event?
First of all because we are working and connected with almost the same population: children are part of a family, families are composed also by women and women are related in several ways with families and with children. It is a loop that includes all of us. Second, despite of the fact that our church organizes several meetings and conventions, they are not always considering or responding to the specificity of our ministries. We felt that putting together our 3 ministries would open other ways of collaboration and mutual support at church level. Families, children and women are facing the same generation opportunities and burdens and we thought that it may be helpful and beneficial to organize a Convention that would allow participants to share ideas and get encouraged or inspired.
Why should people come?
It is a great opportunity to encounter other people believing in the same God, sharing the same values, focusing on the same goals and create new
connection and relationships. This is something that is not common nowadays and that we don’t have the privilege to have every day or every week.
The excellence of the speakers jointly with the value and expertise of every single participant will grant to all of us the opportunity to learn and
go deeper in our spiritual journey as also give us some more tools to make a better job in the part of the world where God called us to be.
Don’t miss it!! Don’t let us miss you!! Let’s go forward together!

Workshops on relevant topics, different kinds of inputs, life stories and presentations by very interesting and powerful speakers from around the world, will enrich your day.
There will be several workshop sessions on Thursday and Friday.
You will have the opportunity to choose from different topics proposed.
Those subjects meet the most common and sensitive issues in life and will give you ideas, insight, and, hopefully, answers to most of your personal life situations and challenges, e.g. health matters, counselling, intergenerational relationships, depressions and burnout, Christian education, social media, gender issues, finance management, special need awareness, abuse and domestic violence, forgiveness and reconciliation, parenting, and more.
Every workshop will be presented by experienced speakers, and will include time for practical activities as well as questions and answers.
