Social Justice and Social Responsibility
In an always more integrated world our preferential care for the more marginalised needs to be expressed through all new participation instruments we dispose of. In this framework, beyond our specific mission and skills, the new frontier and the magis of the care for the latest can be expressed through the social responsibility of our everyday lifestyles. With forms of grassroot participation, advocacy and form of socially responsible saving (such as socially responsible savings channelled to microfinance institutions) and consumptions (such as fair trade) we become salt and light of the world, foster imitation of our neighbour and stimulate corporate and institutional social responsibility.
