Our team together with the international IofC Network is working hard to give you an online 2020 Caux Forum, trying to get you as close as possible to the “Caux experience”.

Although we will not be able to meet in Caux on top of a Swiss mountain this summer, we look forward to meeting online and continuing to provide a platform to inspire, equip and connect innovators, changemakers and peacebuilders from across the globe. We hope that this transformation will provide an opportunity to connect people on a wider scale and therefore make it even more inclusive.

 

“Shaping the future together”

The overall theme of the 2020 Caux Forum stays more relevant than ever in these times where the #newnormal is being redefined. Now is the time to join our heads, hands and hearts, to truly build the future we want together. Just as in 1946, when 99 families and individuals decided to buy the extraordinary Caux Palace to provide it as a platform to change the world, we have the opportunity this year not to be attached to a single place, but to build, strengthen and develop a global community of changemakers with a continuous online platform. Conversations will be able to keep going, initiatives accompanied while actions are being concretized and followed up on.  

 

Get engaged

Help us make the digital Caux Forum a success by sharing information to your network, sending us ideas or issues you think we should address and lastly but also importantly by making a donation. By supporting the Caux Forum as a platform, you are supporting changemakers worldwide.

 

Stay tuned!

We look forward to rich conversations, out of the box ideas, concrete proposals and outcomes that will make this world a more just, peaceful and sustainable place to live in.

We are still working on the exact dates and details, but the events will likely take place this summer. More information coming soon- stay tuned!
