Social Communication

Social Communication is a mean to build bridges and strengthen relations between people and communities. It is also a decisive element of our culture to which the Church is very attentive so as to contribute to the reflection on how life is changing but also to encourage the constructive use of the various media.

➢ Since the nineteen-seventies CCEE has incorporated a Commission for Social Communications

A network of Media officers and spokespersons of the Bishops' Conferences meets once a year, also to speak about Social Communications in a more practical dimension.

➢ Annual Meeting of the Media Officers and Spokespersons of the Bishops’ Conferences of Europe

In many other occasions, such as plenary assemblies or ecumenical meetings, social communications have been at the centre of CCEE's reflections.

Below is a collection of documents, meetings and press releases relating to the theme of Social Communication.
