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 Alumni of the Caux Peace and Leadership Programme as a two-way discussion.

The CPLP Talks offer an opportunity to listen to young voices from around the world, get inspired and engage with one another. Anyone who would like to take part in a conversation around the stories, experiences and challenges of the CPLP Alumni is welcome.

Each month thought-provoking articles will be published on our website and a follow-up online conversation will be held for those who are interested in discussing its topic in more depth.

This month, we invite you to take part in a conversation around culture and the effect of colonization on young people's identities.
