Swiss Perspectives on Peace: Past, Present and Future
5 July, 8:30 am GMT (10:30 CEST)

This year Initiatives of Change Switzerland is celebrating 75 years of facilitating dialogue and profound encounters at its conference centre in Caux. Through this work it has quietly contributed to building trust across the world’s divides.

Our conference centre in Caux has been one of the key platforms in Switzerland and the world for connecting people who would often not meet, and these encounters have continued online despite the pandemic. We will celebrate the past and also look forward to the challenges facing the world as it emerges from the impacts of the pandemic.

We will launch this year's edition of the Caux Forum on  5 July, 8:30 am GMT (10:30 CEST) with a high-level panel on "Swiss Perspectives on Peace: Past, Present and Future", celebrating aspects of what Switzerland has given to the world and referencing the contributions made through Caux.
