Who we are
Jesuits and their partners throughout the world are invited to understand and share in the critical work of reconciliation and responding to ecological concerns (GC35 Decree 3). Ecology and Jesuits in Communication or Ecojesuit, initiated by the Jesuit European Social Centre (JESC) and the Jesuit Conference Asia Pacific (JCAP), is an online communication currently in Spanish, English, and French, open to all who share in this vision and action.
Ecojesuit is an online newsletter that offers contemporary, original, and exclusively written commentaries, reflections and insights, analysis, and exchange of ideas and practices on various ecological and social concerns such as those that relate to water and watershed management, mineral development, food security, impact and adaptations to climate change, disaster risk resilience, renewable and alternative energy, Indigenous Peoples and cultural integrity, sustainable development, among others.
Ecojesuit brings together the concerns of communities from the different regions of the world and the responses and actions taken, while strengthening the scientific knowledge that informs such actions and responses.
While it has a global reach, Ecojesuit communicates communities and local concerns. While initially directed at Jesuit practitioners and organizations working on ecological concerns, Ecojesuit encourages participation and communication beyond the Jesuits and promotes a global collaboration and networking on ecology.
By subscribing and joining Ecojesuit, you will obtain access to these articles and stories twice a month, in English and Spanish. You will also be part of a growing global community of more than 2,000 individuals and organizations that exchanges and contributes updates, information, tools for decision making, publications, and good practices on environmental and social topics.
