General information on social communication including useful documentation.

Social Communication - general

Don Bosco was a communicator par excellence: writer, printer, publisher, bookbinder, entrepreneur - he accomplished the lot! To view documentation relating to this go to www.sdb.org and click on Departments - Social Communication. Individual Province websites may also provide information. But there is a veritable wealth of further information to be gained from the sidebar on this site. Try it now! Involvement in communications in all the above areas and in those which have developed and are developing in modern media are part of the primary activity of Salesians around the globe. The list of major activities in this area is impressive.

Some useful Salesian communications material: SSCS, Formation to SC, Handbook, three sets of concept maps outlining the AGC 390 Letter on social communications: The maps can be viewed separately from here or, using the first, you can click on a tiny network icon in the first and second to proceed to the next: AGC390History, AGC390Challenges, AGC390Response.

An analysis of Fr Chavez' letter AGC390 on Social Communications, in Compendium mapping form.
