Q&A with Sarah Noble


Tell us about your background, Sarah.

My background is in the peace and security sector. I worked for many years in a peacebuilding organisation and also in the non-profit media space.


What are you passionate about in your work?

I am really passionate about the role stories play, how we understand the world and how we make change. Change, starting with each one of us, is one of the core elements of Initiatives of Change and I am therefore excited to be part of the Caux Foundation team. 


What inspired you to join the Caux Initiatives of Change Foundation?

I was inspired to join the Foundation because of its mission to promote a more just and peaceful society. That’s the kind of world I want to live in and I want to spend every day that I can ensuring that me and my children and all of us can live in a more peaceful world.


What is your favourite place at the Caux Palace?

It’s the Main Hall where the Caux Forums take place each July, like the two forums coming up this summer on the Inner Development Goals and on democracy. It's not only the beauty of this room with amazes me, but I am also in awe of all those important peacebuilding moments which have taken place right here, like the reconciliation between Germans and French after World War II, the dialogues to promote peace in the Great Lake Region in the early 2000s, or the launch of the international women's initiative Creators of Peace.


Welcome to the team, Sarah, and all the best for this new adventure!
