After decades in which conflict has gradually reduced around the world, the tide has turned. Conflict is increasing.

This forum focused on a fundamental cause of this trend: the broken relationships caused by unhealed wounds of the past – personal, national and international.

17 - 22 JULY in Caux Switzerland!

After the Second World War, thousands of Germans and French came together at Caux and helped their countries build an entirely new relationship. Ever since, Caux forums have reached out across the world, contributing to healing in many painful situations. 

Healing can come. New energy, vision and calling can emerge from each step taken to repair a relationship. Trust can grow again, and with it the cooperation needed to answer the huge environmental, economic and social challenges we face globally.

This forum will focused on the experiences of people from all continents and many cultures. It offered an opportunity to learn from each other, and from quiet reflection amidst the beauty of Caux’s setting. Through trainings, plenaries, workshops and dialogues, it aimed to equip participants to contribute to peace and human security by fostering:

  • A greater understanding of the impact of historical wounds
  • Heightened skills in dialogue facilitation, conflict transformation, trauma awareness and story-sharing
  • Learning from personal experiences of healing past wounds and building trust.
