LCEJ's six Units are at your service to respond to your physical, social and spiritual needs.
Ecojust Managing Unit
The Loyola Centre for Ecology & Justice (LCEJ) is divided into six units with specific roles to allow the Director, his staff and associates to manage activities in a way that is honest, accountable and responsive to the needs of low-income families. LCEJ Director in consultation with his Advisors initiates long-term programs (usually five years) aiming at finding solutions to the present environmental crisis and to reduce the injustice that the crisis generates. Some of those programs are under the responsibility of the Ecojust Managing Unit (EjMU).
Spiritual Ecology Unit
There is a high probability that the present environmental crisis will threaten life, all forms of life.
The problem is clear and the question is simple:
“What can we do?”, “What can I do?”.
We/I have three basic options:
1. We/I ignore the threat.
2. We/I accelerate the process.
3. We/I find a cure.
In fact we/I feel so overwhelmed by the problem that we/I cannot even choose between those options. We/I have not been trained to deal with complications.
Spiritual Ecology is a way of life and a training which gives us/me insights into what is pathogenetic (producing suffering) and what is therapeutic (curative, healing, alleviating).
Through our Support Services, we have the potential to make a real and positive change in the community. This is one of our key areas of focus here at Loyola Centre for Ecology and Justice Trincomalee, and a source of much success for our Non-Profit Organization. Get in touch with us today and see how you can lend a helping hand with this program.
Most of our efforts pertaining to this program involve studying new approaches and developing innovative ways to implement them. We evaluate our success in this field by gathering qualitative and quantitative data, and using that information to measure shifts and changes from our baseline measurements.
We see every challenge as an opportunity, and this initiative helps us ensure that our partners are better prepared to manage the unique situations they find themselves in. We are invested in an innovative approach that empowers our community and delivers the support they need, when they need it.
Local Networking Unit
If climate change and other forms of the environmental crisis are affecting the entire planet (biosphere), the response of local eco-systems are countless. If eco-systems have common characteristics, they vary depending on elevation, topography, temperature and rainfall patterns. In order to be effective in sustaining life in a particular eco-system, LCEJ must be fully aware of the characteristics of the eco-systems in which it is developing its projects.
From the perspective of LCEJ, an eco-system is not limited to nature but includes culture. LCEJ must work with local fishermen, local farmers, the tourist industry and other groups that are shaping the local culture and thus giving some unique characteristics to the Trincomalee District eco-systems.
