Conceived first as the title for an international symposium in 1996, Agenda for Reconciliation (AfR) grew into a global network active in conflict prevention and reconciliation. Until 2007 its annual conferences at Caux, in Switzerland, offered participants coming from situations of tension and conflict a safe space and the opportunity to learn from one another.
Agenda for Reconciliation is no longer active as a formal international programme, but the network it built continues creatively in many parts of the world. In the UK, the programme name is still being used as an umbrella for various inter-cultural initiatives.
Mohamed Sahnoun, former Special Advisor to UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan, initiated the Caux Forum for Human Security to find a preventive strategy that could tackle the root causes of insecurity and save millions of lives. This will require unprecedented trust and collaboration among all nations and actors. The Caux Forum for Human Security seeks this trust and collaboration.
Who we are: Initiatives of Change (IofC) is a world-wide movement of people of diverse cultures and backgrounds, who are committed to the transformation of society through changes in human motives and behaviour, starting with their own.
Purpose: We work to inspire, equip and connect people to address world needs, starting with themselves, in the areas of trustbuilding, ethical leadership and sustainable living.
