Global Citizenship: An Ignatian Definition
Global Citizens are those who continuously seek to deepen their awareness of their place and responsibility in an increasingly interconnected world, both locally and globally; those who stand in solidarity with others in the pursuit of a sustainable earth and a more humane world as true companions in the mission of reconciliation and justice.
The Secretariat Taskforce on Global Citizenship offers an Ignatian definition of Global Citizenship, together with some guiding questions and a framework for integrating the UAPs and the JESEDU-Rio2017 Action Statement with the global dimensions in our Jesuit schools. This work incorporates and builds on the existing Global Citizenship materials gathered by the global community. We invite you to browse these pages and/or download the information as a PDF document.
“ We have enormous capacity to awaken hope in our world, contributing to the formation of men and women who are just, true global citizens. ”
Father General Arturo Sosa, SJ, JESEDU-Rio2017
