Global Centres

IofC welcomes people to centres in Switzerland, India, Brazil, and Australia

Mountain House, Caux

In 1946 Caux, in Switzerland, opened its doors to become the joint international conference centre for Initiatives of Change, supplementing the centre already established on Mackinac Island in the Great Lakes in North America. Each summer the Caux Forum draws between 1400 and 2000 people of all different walks of life to be part of a continuous series of programmes dealing with specific subjects. It is at Caux that many of the IofC programmes are developed. More >>

Asia Plateau

Asia Plateau in Panchgani, India is another international conference centre. Created in 1967, it runs training courses in character development throughout the year for people in industry, the armed forces, and NGO's, as well as for school and university students and families. More >>

Armagh in Melbourne, the Australia-Pacific centre for IofC, offers an experience of community-living, and regular conferences, meetings and courses for young people. Read more about Armagh on IofC's Australian website.

Sítio São Luiz

Sitio São Luiz is the conference centre of Initiatives of Change in Latin America. It was acquired in 1965 through the sacrifice of many people. People from all walks of life take part in a variety of programmes including events run by IofC (such as the annual Meeting of the Americas), and events run by like-minded groups who rent the facility. Sitio São Luiz exists for the specific purpose of providing a training centre and events venue to spread and deepen the ideas of Initiatives of Change for all people, and especially the people of Latin America.
