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.

The Caux Forum takes place in the Caux Palace, a former Belle Époque Grand Hotel nestled in the mountains 1000m above sea level. With its breathtaking view over Lake Geneva and the Alps, it provides a unique and inspiring setting. After a full day at the Caux Forum, participants can enjoy the spectacular scenery from their balcony.

The Caux Forum offers them time to gain some perspective, retreat from the bustling routine and find a space that allows for silent reflection, creative sharing and an exchange of ideas.
