Ecojesuit shares this article published in the first English edition of La Civiltà Cattolica, a magazine published continuously by the Jesuits in Rome since 1850 and originally available only in Italian.  For the first time, its 4000th edition is also in English, French, Spanish, and Korean, and was launched in January 2017. Pope Francis met the Jesuit writers for the magazine, and “shared with them the importance of poetry, art, and pioneering intellectual research (as frontiers) and defend not just Catholic ideas but must also witness to Christ in the world with a restless, imaginative, and open-ended spirit (as bridges).”  This article was initially featured in the Volume IV, 2016 issue of La Civiltà Cattolica with the title “I lineamenti scienza della sostenibilità.”

The Global Ignatian Advocacy Network (GIAN) on Ecology coordinates the Stockholm Dialogue on Sustainability Science and Values, for which the initial step was taken when a core working group met in Malaybalay, Bukidnon in Mindanao, Philippines after the International Conference on Transformative Land and Water Governance in May 2014. The second step of the dialogue is now pursued through a meeting with Spanish Jesuit universities and German scientists in Namur, Belgium in November 2014, after which a series of activities in 2015 will follow.
