CIDSE advocates a shift from models that encourage a material conception of being, illustrated by resource- and carbon-intensive consumption along with extreme profits and inequalities, to models that work in favour of human well-being – living simply, in community –, giving priority to equity, sustainability, and responsibility. Politics and economy should be at the service of the common good, with the aim of a just distribution of wealth, power and resources, and a voice in decision-making for those affected by policy choices, according to the principle of subsidiarity.
