Global Advocacy Networks

For the first time, all the current members of the Global Ignatian Advocacy Network (GIAN) have come together from 18-23 June in the retreat house near the birth place of St Ignatius in Loyola. The five leaders and twenty core group members of the global networks for Ecology, Right to Education, Migration, Peace and Human Rights, and Governance of Natural and Mineral Resources have spend six days learning about advocacy and networking, and discerning the way forward for their networks. The workshop in Loyola will be followed by a worldwide mapping of Jesuit institutions currently engaged in advocacy. Read about the meeting on the GIAN website: http://www.ignatianadvocacy.org/
