International debate on the Common Good

Today we have started an international mailing list for the debate on the Common Good of Humanity, the Common Good Newsgroup, hosted by Birgit Daiber, François Houtart, Francine Mestrum and me.
Dear Colleagues and Friends,
with this e-mail we invite you to participate in a newsgroup to discuss the subject of Common Good and to inform about the debates and the ongoing struggles on specific topics.
