Activities and Methodology

1. Pre-forum Workshop

There will be a pre-forum organized for an Ignatian Family encounter from January 16-19 2007. This will provide a platform for a deeper reflection and exchange on Ignatian spirituality and values as well as on specific social issues of concern for Africa and the entire globe as well. It will be an opportunity to share experiences on regional problems from a local and global perspective thanks to the participation of African and non-African delegates. The pre-forum will be also be an occasion to strengthen our networking and make our social apostolate more effective and relevant to the challenges of the times.

2. Ignatian Family at the WSFIn order to foster dialogue and sharing among IF members the delegation will be hosted in one single venue and will meet daily to discuss and share lessons learned and experiences of the WSF. There will also be daily meetings to reflect on the daily events of the day and the Ignatian calling in social ministries. The Ignatian Family will participate in events organized by other institutions and organization. The family will be part of the larger Catholic coordination body and will mutually participate in each other’s activities.

3. Presentation of a joint Seminar/Workshop at the WSF

The Ignatian Family will have a Workshop/Seminar (3 hours) presentation on one of the days of the WSF. This event will be officially registered with the organisation of the WSF. The presentation will be based on the five thematic discussions at the pre-forum. The five topics at the pre-forum will provide the case studies for reflecting on the emerging spirituality (and values) for social action. This will contribute to the public debate on social issues and gain mileage on the visibility of Ignatian institutions and their activities.

The following table summarises the activities planned during the coming WSF at Nairobi.
