San Pedro de Sintra, Portugal - Friendship in the Digital Era

Why do we find friendship so fulfilling? How can we foster it in the digital era? The two seminars on “The Strength of Friendship,” held in São Pedro de Sintra (November 16 and 17) and in Arcozelo (November 23 and 24), were dedicated to answering these questions. The seminars, aimed at women seeking to integrate dedication to their family with an outside job, highlighted the anthropological foundations of friendship in Jewish and Hellenic cultures, and especially the importance of generosity and empathy for strong friendships. Other topics included the characteristics of the current generations, the relationship between friendship, loneliness and the internet, and friendship in the family and at work.
