Towards the creation of the Brasil-Cono Sur region



The reflection team of Brasil-Cono Sur gathers

14/12/2015: Brazil

The team in charge of reflecting on the structure of the Brasil-Cono Sur region met to discuss future steps from Nov. 30 – Dec. 1 in Porto Alegre. 

The team has begun work to define a regional strategy proposal to be presented at the Amplified General Council meeting to be held in Florianopolis, Brazil, from March 1 – 5.

The team is made up of Brothers and laity from the five provinces of the region and include: Br Wagner Cruz and Manuela Suassuna of Brasil Centro Norte, Br Jorge Gaio and Rony Ahlfeldt of Brasil Centro Sul, Br Deivis Fischer and Gustavo Balbinot of Rio Grande do Sul, Br Jesús Pérez and Ricardo Miño of Santa María de los Andes, Br Juan Fuentes, Br Horacio Bustos and Fernando Larrambebere of Cruz del Sur and the adviser of the New Models Project, Luca Olivari. 

This has been the first meeting of the team, where its main work has been knowing the operating model of the five provinces, highlighting good practices that could be used at a regional level, and proposing a list of potential priorities to be developed in the future region.

After this initial phase of knowledge, the team continued its work in two groups: the ‘green group,’ which focused on people, and the ‘blue group,’ which focused on structures.

They had the tasks of 1) drawing the path / itinerary leading up to 2020 and 2) selecting and prioritising two or three strategic initiatives for the medium term.

Now the next task is to prepare the action plan (objectives, description, resources, time, those responsible, the final achievement expected ...) for each of the selected strategic initiatives and priorities.

This task will have to be taken to the second team meeting to be held in Buenos Aires, on Feb. 22 and 23. 

This first meeting reached its objectives thanks to the intense and generous work of the participants.

The presence of Luca Olivari as advisor to the New Models project, directed and facilitated the process.

The second meeting, in Buenos Aires, will have the task of completing the work and preparing a final proposal to be presented to the Expanded General Council which will meet in Florianopolis in March next year.
