The Macau Ricci Institute (MRI) will promote a new online session of its Contemplation and Leadership workshop on July 19th, at a time when the Special Administrative Region continues battling its worst Covid-19 outbreak.

The Macau Ricci Institute will discuss the current status of the intercultural dialogue with the People’s Republic of China and the way it was affected by the Covid-19 pandemic in its annual symposium.

The first activity – an online forum on “spiritual transformation” – takes place next Monday.
