"The values that challenge us"

Friends of Caux Weekend

Friends of Caux Nov 2019


Every November, the Friends of Caux meet over a weekend in Caux. This year their theme was ‘the values that challenge us’. From 16-17 November, about 30 people gathered to share stories and reflect on IofC’s four core values: honesty, unselfishness, love and purity of motive. They also heard about IofC’s current work around trustbuilding. 

The Friends of Caux implement projects which further the aims of Initiatives of Change Switzerland and increase the visibility of the Caux Forum. They meet frequently in Bern, and gather for days in different parts of Switzerland.

Those who attended the November weekend agreed that the IofC’s values were not only a daily challenge, but also a guide to finding inner peace.

‘These moments of exchange and sharing encourage us to keep going, to keep the hope alive for the future of our world and to keep trying to embody these values,’ said one participant.
