In response to the six challenges of Fr General, the Rio Congress proposed 13 action points for Jesuit schools worldwide to respond to in their development plans over the next five years:
1. The delegates commit to promote the Examen of Consciousness in each of the schools to help students listen to their inner voice and learn the path of interiority.
2. The delegates commit to work with the schools to ensure a module (or some such unit of the curriculum) of interreligious education is implemented. This module should allow students to learn about and from the world´s religions and respect the various ways religions express and celebrate the divine.
3. The delegates commit to find ways in which Ignatian spirituality (cf. the Spiritual Exercises) can be actively adapted to the school setting so that students learn the habit of stillness and the practice of discernment.
4. The delegates commit to engaging a process of Ignatian discernment that will lead to a plan of innovation for each school and a periodic review that corresponds to the local context and our tradition.
5. The delegates commit to reviewing with schools the traditional organizational structures and roles with a particular regard for gender stereotypes and gender inequalities.
6. The delegates commit to working with the schools to enhance the way parents and families are invited into our education and formation.
7. The delegates commit to urge the schools to reflect on the nature of human holistic excellence (the 4Cs) so that academic success can be understood in its proper context. The delegates also commit to urge the schools to reflect on traditional notions of success and failure in the lives of our students.
8. The delegates commit to promoting an environmental and social policy for each of our schools and to proposing ways regional networks can clearly integrate justice, faith, and care for the environment within the curricula of the schools highlighting critical thinking, political awareness, and social engagement – all to be reflected in classroom and school practices.
9. The delegates commit to ensuring that schools have a programme in place that allows students from marginalized and poor sectors of society to participate in a quality education and to ensuring that schools serving the marginalized and poor reach beyond their experiences to build bridges with other people and communities.
10. The delegates commit, during their school visits and reviews, to assessing and developing the level of regional and global networking cooperation that exists.
11. The delegates commit to including in new faculty and staff training programmes an understanding that faculty and staff are joining a global network and that they have a role to play in animating it.
12. The delegates further commit to working with the schools´ leadership to oblige all faculty and staff be formed in global citizenship so that they can help students understand their future as global citizens.
13. The delegates commit to making Educate Magis an integral tool and resource in the schools to help animate their global dimension.
