Home Renaissance Foundation's next stop will be Bogota, Colombia, to launch the project at the 2014 Annual Conference of the Home RenaissanceFoundation.The topic of the Conference, which will take place in December 2014, will be "Development & Sustainability: Care in Daily Life".

Discussion Forum: Fatherhood/Motherhood and Work
Home Renaissance Foundation's panel began with an introduction by HRF Director Julia Prats within the framework of sociologist Zygmunt Bauman's statement: "There should be some legal, social and economic framework which would allow people to choose working at home as a profession". Julia Prats introduced the challenge faced by companies when an employer sees in his or her workers an inability to tackle problems at work, which could be linked to their childhood upbringing at home.

Experts Meeting New York: Professional Work of the Home
Professor John Rist Chair in Philosophy at the CUA initiated proceedings with his paper VULNERABILITY: CHARACTERISTICS OF WORK IN THE HOME. He said that when we are confronted with examples of vulnerability we have two fundamental options: we can either manipulate, abuse or ignore the vulnerable to our own supposed advantage, or we can try and reduce their vulnerability.

Conference: Home and Identity
How is the home associated with personal and social identity in both the public and private spheres? This is the overarching question for the International Conference: Home and Identity: The Private-Public Nexus. The home (private) implies separation from the world (public). Domesticity in this context is seen in relation to a person's need for centeredness especially in an anonymous globalised world.

Symposium: Housework and well-being
Former head of PR for the Vatican under Pope John Paul II, Dr. Joaquin Navarro Valls, and Italian politician Dr. Paola Binetti addressed a group of international guests at Home Renaissance Foundation's Annual Symposium. With over thirty participants representing universities and educational institutions from around the world, the great accomplishment of the 2011 symposium has been to gather great minds and enthusiasts in an event geared to propel the Foundation forward for the next few years.

International Conference Sustainable Living: Professional Approaches to Housework
As an international and interdisciplinary event the 2011 Excellence in the Home conference, Sustainable Living: Professional Approaches to Housework, aims to deepen our knowledge about how developing and improving professional approaches to housework can enhance the wellbeing of present and future generations.

Symposium: Influencing Policy
On May 26th 2010 Home Renaissance Foundation hosted its annual symposium at IESE Business School, Barcelona. The symposium gathered a carefully selected audience of over 30 academics, lawyers, entrepreneurs, authors and home managers to examine three topics surrounding the work of the home: quality of life, policy-making and work-life balance.

Symposium: Homemaking & Social Sustainability
What is the link between home economics and a sustainable society? There are many who would say not much. The three speakers at the Home Renaissance Foundation symposium held in May 2009 in the IESE Business School, Barcelona, had a lot to argue against this general consensus.

International Conference - From House to Home
What makes the space we live in a home? This question is worth answering if, as we believe, the wellbeing of each person begins in the home. Study and research shows that a successful home influences the welfare of our society.

Symposium: Strategic Communications
Home Renaissance Foundation organised a workshop in Rome on Strategic Communication for organisations promoting the home on 30th and 31st May 2008.
