JUST GOVERNANCE FOR HUMAN SECURITY

Exploring our part in the Global Goals

 

Human Security has been described by United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan as “Freedom from want, freedom from fear, and the freedom of future generations to inherit a healthy natural environment”[1] .This event addresses current global concerns linked to human security through a holistic approach centered around the Six Pillars of Human Security.

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), otherwise known as the Global Goals, are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity.

In 2018, the event will focus on the link between the Six Pillars of Human Security and the Global Goals in addressing the factors that contribute to human insecurity and foster conflict.

This event is for anyone seeking to make fresh steps toward hope and for all sectors of global society: diplomats, elected officials, educators, the media, civil and social actors and academics. Caux provides a safe space for dialogue, where voices are heard, ideas are respected and all members of society can connect. This is a unique opportunity to work together to advance human security and to get inspired to take action.

What past participants say:

In the pursuit of human security, we as citizens, activists and leaders all have a role to play. This is why programmes such as the Caux Forum and humansecurityX are so important. They provide the knowledge, skills and cross-sectoral connections needed to fuel citizen engagement.

David Chikvaidze, Chef de Cabinet of the Director General at the UN Office at Geneva

The Just Governance for Human Security conference was unique in its ability to bring together diversity or cultural and professional backgrounds to tackle contemporary challenges. The unparalleled sense of community at this conference, allows for unfiltered and respectful dialogue.  The spirit of camaraderie among participants gives me hope that just governance is achievable within our lives.

Dr Edward Mabaya, Assistant Director of the Cornell Institute for Food and Agricultural Development

I came to Caux without much understanding about what to expect. I was inspired, moved and energized. The topics were challenging, but the collection of the great minds and those eager to listen more than speak, created opportunities for insights and life-changing action.
