“Action without vision is only passing time, vision without action is merely day dreaming, but vision with action can change the world”. – Nelson Mandela

In 2016 we moved a step closer to putting our vision into action: by strengthening CAUX-IofC’s presence in International Geneva and in Switzerland’s capital, Bern ; restoring and maintaining the Caux Palace in line with the Foundation’s commitment to sustainable living ; working with our new colleagues to offer you an enhanced Caux experience this summer – the Caux Forum.

We thank you for your continued support and look forward to building on our successes together in the coming year. We wish you a festive holiday season and a very happy New Year!
