** List of GIAN common concerns: these are the concerns or questions that we really need to deal with in order to make GIAN networks active in the future. We should make a list and prioritize it. What is given in the following list are only some of them. We can add more as we reflect:

1) to us (leaders, SJES…) or
2) to others (Conference Presidents, Social Coordinators, Central Governance of the SJ etc …)
2. They can be
1) practical: how to develop the networks in the present circumstances?
2) theoretical: what would be best?
