IAJES process of growth

Firstly, in Bilbao 2018 people are so enthusiastic about mutual knowledge, in the sharing of experiences. This constitutes the first major benefit of the existence of this new network. Unanimously, the attendees adopted the principle of a yearly conference.

Secondly, in Cali 2019, every JES was called for a contribution aimed for potential collaborations. This opens many opportunities for effective cooperation. IAJES members enter freely into fruitful connections to foster their local dynamics.

Thirdly, the network promotes the creation of dedicated IAJES task forces. Some will develop into : Health, Energy, Water…

At the same time, the network consolidates its identity, vision, priorities, statutes and structures.

In perspective, the task forces may generate ambitious projects. These latter will necessarily have key characteristics as to:

  • support and enhance the local strategy of the IAJES members,

  • enter in synergy with other initiatives within the ignatian works and outside.

  • succeed in raising funds oriented to these projects
