Caux Forum for a new world


The flagship forum hosted by the Swiss team may be digitally delivered, but reamins human centered.

As the COVID-19 crisis begins to recede, now is the time to come together and discover concrete ways to rebuild a world that is more just, peaceful and sustainable. The Caux Forum Online will equip you with the tools you need to navigate these times of uncertainty and connect you to a global network of changemakers for knowledge and support.

This summer the Swiss team may have changed the venue, but not the spirit!

This year’s Caux Forum features inspirational speakers, safe spaces for dialogue and times for reflection. The human centered approach, which builds off years of experience in changemaking dialogue, working in tandem with digital platforms, will be a unique experience not to be missed.

Join us as we support the Swiss team in ‘shaping the future together’!

What is the Caux Forum?

The annual Caux Forum, a programme of conferences, training and dialogues, aims to inspire, equip and connect individuals, groups and organizations so that they can build a just, peaceful and sustainable world.

Each year around 1,500 people attend the Forum to address the burning issues of our time and to find innovative, creative and sustainable answers together. Participants and speakers are drawn from civil society, government and business. A safe space of trust, care, solidarity and respect provides them with the opportunity to discuss openly and in-depth a variety of issues.

Participating in the Caux Forum is about unlocking your potential: it encourages individuals, groups and organizations to reflect on their roles, explore their resources, and connect with their responsibilities as changemakers, on the basis that everyone can make a difference.
