From October 15-20, 2017, Education Delegates from the six Jesuit regions of the world, along with others in Jesuit educational apostolates, came together in Rio de Janeiro, convened by the Secretary for Education of the Society of Jesus. At the Congress, Education Delegates continued the conversations which begun in a Virtual Congress held six months earlier (which followed upon SIPEI in Manresa in 2014 and the International Colloquium on Jesuit Secondary Education in Boston in 2012). This Keynote playlist consists of the Official Speech (Allocution) given by Father General Arturo Sosa, SJ to the delegates of the Congress and the main keynote contributions, representing the four main topics of the Congress.
The themes are the following:
- Theme 1: Tradition: A Call for Innovation
- Theme 2: Caring for our Common Home: Ecology and Social Justice
- Theme 3: Sent in a Global Network
- Theme 4: Our experience of God: in dialogue with diverse points of view
The texts of these Keynotes and Father General’s Speech along with other material are available in the JESEDU-Rio2017 Collection.
