Director – Johannes de Jong

Johannes de Jong has been working for Sallux since it’s start in 2011. He has been focusing on economy and international relations with a specific attention to those who are quickly overlooked in the global economy and geopolitics. For him salt means that we as Christians need to be sharp and clear (‘salted debate’) and practical in order to prevent that the most oppressed are forgotten in economy and international relations. Light means for him that it is often necessary to shed a new light at the issues and to work on new paradigms in order to find solutions that solve the underlying issues in the challenges we are confronted with.

“Salt and Light” to Nellie means to do her best to portrait His likeness by having the courage to reach out unto the dark in order to shine his Light trusting we will not lose eyesight. Spread "Salt" in order to rebuild trusting we won’t cut ourselves on the shattered pieces.
