Healing the Wounds of the Past
17 – 22 July 2023
Caux, Switzerland

After decades in which conflict has gradually reduced around the world, the tide has turned. Conflict is increasing. 

This forum will focus on a fundamental cause of this trend: the broken relationships caused by unhealed wounds of the past – personal, national and international.

Who is this event for?

This forum will focus on the experiences of people from all continents and many cultures. It will offer an opportunity to learn from each other, and from quiet reflection amidst the beauty of Caux’s setting.

Through trainings, plenaries, workshops and dialogues, it aims to equip participants to contribute to peace and human security by fostering:

• A greater understanding of the impact of historical wounds

• Heightened skills in dialogue facilitation, conflict transformation, trauma awareness and story-sharing

• Learning from personal experiences of healing past wounds and building trust.

Trust and Integrity in Democracy
23 – 26 July 2023
Caux, Switzerland

In the 1990s democracy was advancing across the world. Today democracy is regressing and authoritarian regimes are gaining ground.

The 2022 World Justice Project Index finds that the rule of law has declined globally for the fifth year in a row.

Many of our leaders are undermining democratic values...

Who is this event for?

Democracy thrives through people who work for integrity and inclusivity, who resolve conflict, who build trust across sectors and at all levels of society.

This forum is for those who want to discover how to help their countries respond effectively to internal and global challenges.

How can we see a resurgence of trust in our political systems? And what can ordinary citizens do to reverse this trend and strengthen democracy in their respective countries?
