Global Citizenship

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.


  • An Ignatian Perspective – the definition and an overview of this work
  • An Ignatian Context (Ignatian Historical and Contemporary Context) – the beautiful infographic showing how we have arrived at this point
  • A Way of Proceeding: A Whole School Approach – the link between the UAPS, Rio and Global Citizenship as well as the guiding questions for different audiences within the school community
  • Activities and Plans – some practical resources and materials teachers can use in the classroom with a view to gathering more from the community
  • About the Taskforce – which links to each of the Task Force profiles on Educate Magis
