Federation of Catholic Family Associations in Europe

Family Values and their link to Economic Well-Being and Social Outcomes

IYF +20

To mark the 20th anniversary of the International Year of the Family, the Universal Peace Federation (UPF) in partnership with the Women’s Federation for World Peace (WFWP) organise a conference on « Family Values and their link to Economic Well-Being and Social Outcomes.» in Geneva, Switzerland on June 30 & July 1st 2014, at the United Nations. FAFCE's Secretary General will be one of the speakers on family issues and policy.  

There is currently widespread confusion in these areas caused by a combination of a breakdown in moral and social values, political meddling and the adoption of policies that can only be described as reckless and which threaten accelerating social chaos. Faced with these realities, parents often feel powerless to protect their children from very controversial influences at a time of social experimentation.

What are the consequences of these developments?

What has been done so far to rectify them and what needs to be done from now on?

This conference will bring together experts, from various fields, including politics, religion, science and academia as well as leaders of various family and parent associations to examine these issues and to seek solutions to the problems raised by them.
