The 2017 edition of CATS (Children as Actors for Transforming Society) saw the launch of the 90 Day Challenge. The idea was simple: CATS participants thoroughly explored their ideas for a range of topics including the environment, education and peace whilst at Caux. Once home, from 20 August 2017, they had 90 days to put their ideas into action. The aim was to provide the participants with the necessary drive and motivation to dive in and to make a start on a project despite not having to necessarily produce results.

The first edition of Towards an Inclusive Peace (TIP) took place from 23-26 July 2017 during the Caux Forum. The event sought to discover new ways for peacebuilders to address violent extremism. Recently, approaches to addressing violent extremism have moved away from traditional security-based methods towards a more inclusive and local emphasis. TIP 2017 aimed to equip participants to include local communities in the process of building peace.

CATS 2017

‘We are the citizens of today and tomorrow,’ stated Kehkashan Basu, 17, winner of the 2016 International Children’s Peace Prize, as she opened the fifth edition of Children as Actors for Transforming Society (CATS). Empowering children to become the leaders of tomorrow is what CATS is all about. CATS 2017 gathered 264 children, young people and adults of 34 nationalities to promote inclusion and to give children experiencing exclusion a voice.

AEUB, Addressing Europe's Unfinished Business

In Europe even where populists are not winning elections, their narratives of blaming immigrants and minorities dominate political debates. Many citizens are losing faith in integration as the best means of ensuring peace, security and prosperity. There is a tendency to isolate ourselves, retreating into groups based on ethnicity, religious beliefs, or class. Such polarization deeply affects the way Europeans work together for the common good.

Barbara Hintermann, Caux Forum 2017

"This summer has shown that the Caux Forum is becoming a, if not the, place to discuss peace in its broadest sense. It offered a holistic approach to addressing extremism of all kinds: from tackling extremes in business, preventing violent extremism, advancing the pillars of human security and dealing with polarization in Europe to empowering children to create a more inclusive society and promoting investment in land restoration." Read the message of Barbara Hintermann, General Secretary of the CAUX-IofC Foundation on the Caux Forum 2017.
