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. (Secretariat Global Taskforce, 2019)




Hemispheres is a monthly publication for JSN educators to accompany and share with one another concrete, practical ways they are facilitating the mission of Justice and Reconciliation at their school.
