The Caux Peace and Leadership Talks (CPLP Talks) is an online space where stories can be shared and connections made. This series is hosted and facilitated by the Caux Peace and Leadership Programme Alumni as a two-way discussion. It offers an opportunity to listen to young voices from around the world, get inspired and engage with one another. Everyone who would like to take part in a conversation around the stories, experiences and challenges of the CPLP Alumni is welcome.

Each month a thought-provoking article will be published on www.caux.ch and a follow-up online conversation will be held for those who are interested to discuss its topic in more depth.

The series will share thoughts and courageous steps taken by young people across the world, starting with our friends in Beirut who have shown immense courage and strength since the devastating explosion of 4 August 2020. Please join us to create greater understanding and to be part of our global team of new leaders.

 

The CPLP Talks will take place on Zoom. If you wish to participate on 10 October 2020 (14:00 CEST) you can register here. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting. You will find the terms and conditions here.

 

Discover our two stories on the explosion in Beirut and the impact it has made on people's lives:
