Rome - Conference Coordinators meet
From 22 to 26 April, the social coordinators of the 6 conferences gathered in Rome for their annual meeting at the secretariat. This year, they relooked at the commitments made last year on ecology, reflected on networking that is being developed within the conferences and at the global level. This networking is offering some answers to the common apostolic challenges that go beyond provincial borders, establishing collaborations that lead to initiatives in the field of research or advocacy in defense of the poor, while maintaining a commitment to the local, from which springs the energy and credibility. The sharing on the situation of the GIAN networks at various conferences helped in recognizing the positive growth and also the genuine difficulties encountered in realizing the goal. With the help of Luis Arancibia from Entreculturas and Jorge Cela, President of CPAL, the participants prepared a draft document on networking.
