''We need to walk with the times'', said the general councillor for social communication quoting Don Bosco. In his opening address, he presented his vision for the media ministry of the Salesians of Don Bosco for the next six years and proposed the methodology to realise the same. While briefing about the schedule for the four days program he specially thanked the two regional councillors Fr. Biju Michael (South Asia) and Fr. Joseph Thinh (East Asia - Oceania) for their support and accompaniment and all the Provincials of these regions for their encouragement and collaboration. He also placed on record his gratitude to his predecessor Fr. Filiberto Gonzalez for his valuable contribution to this sector of Social Communication in the past years.

Fr. Joseph Thinh, in his address underlined the important role of media and its impact on the young in today's context. He stressed the importance of accompanying them in this new virtual reality.

Peter Chinh (Vietnam), Fr. Bastin Nellissery (INK) & Fr. Francis Xavier (INP). Following the presentation, the participants were divided into four groups to discuss possible additions and enhancements to the document.

Peter Gonsalves, Faculty of Social Communication Sciences, UPS, Rome. ''Salesian Sacrament of Presence''and ''Methodology in Communication - based on GC28'' by Fr.
