Evaluation Meeting 2006
The International Coordination of CLC met in Malaysia on 13 August 2006 to mark five years of its development. A critical analysis of the socio, economic, political and cultural reality at the international level was done by the team who came prepared with relevant data and case studies.
The study done by those present reiterated the firm conviction in Cardijn’s vision and methods. It was concluded that we take Cardijn as our point of reference in our quest for holistic development.
Conclusions and indicators
Based on this study and conclusion, the vision and mission of the network were redefined at this meeting:
CLC becomes CCI
In order to effectively implement the decisions and to be relevant to the vision of the network, the name of the network was changed from CLC to CARDIJN COMMUNITY INTERNATIONAL (CCI). A new International Coordination Team was also decided upon at this meeting. M. J. Ruben from India – International Convenor; Stefan Gigacz (Australia) and Greg Lopez (Malaysia) - International Coordinators. V. Susairaj and Dr Bernard d’ Sami from India – Resource Persons.
- Building Teams in countries
- External relations – Newsletter to act as link with others and whenever need arises
- Centres: To develop a research towards launching a Cardijn Centre by 2007
- 2007 events: To limit our activity to 40th death anniversary of Cardijn with a thrust to get due recognition to Cardijn from Church (Doctor of the Church) and from society; to interpret Cardijn and to promote his work by way of publications, translations and research.
It was decided that the network would be open to all who subscribe to Cardijn’s ideas and to all those who had grown through Cardijn’s techniques of See, Judge and Act. (From YCS, YCW, IMCS, MIJARC and other Cardijn initiated movements and organizations).
A decision was also made to locate the International Secretariat in India in a rented place at the office of Jeeva Jyothi (Susairaj), Chennai. Work there would focus on bringing out publications on Cardijn, starting a Cardijn Research Centre, organising an International Symposium in India in 2007.
