The Jesuits in India are part of the Jesuit Conference of South Asia (JCSA) of the Society of Jesus. Within India, the Provinces of the Society of Jesus are divided into 4 Zones for better networking.

We have learnt the hard way that individual institutional efforts are not sufficient nor effective and hence Jesuit Provinces are grouped into Zones for better networking and reaping the benefits of scale.

The West Zone consists of the Provinces of Bombay, Goa, Gujarat and Pune.  Jesuits involved in any type of ecology-work are known as Eco-Jesuits and within the Zone, these seek ways to network and collaborate with one another, with their lay partners, with government and with civil society groups involved in similar efforts to preserve the environment and achieve sustainable development. For better coordination, the Platform is divided into 4 Networks:

In the years ahead, the West Zone Platform for Integral Ecology will attempt to be a force for change in our Provinces, by joining forces, sharing expertise and becoming a large network that can collaborate with civil society and government in the quest for Sustainable Development. On this website we will document the efforts being made and we also invite your interaction and suggestions.
