Initiatives of Change is a diverse, global network committed to building trust across the world's divides. It works on the principle that changes in people's motives, attitudes and behaviour are not only possible but are the only sure basis on which wider lasting change in society can be brought about. Aims and Objectives of IofC Initiatives of Change (IofC) is focussed around the interaction of people, whether few or many, in homes, small or large groups, personal encounters, training courses, and local or international conferences. For over 70 years IofC has brought people of diverse backgrounds and faiths together. It has provided a rallying point for individuals and teams to work for justice, healing and human development, based on personal change starting in their own lives. Current initiatives are aimed at: Healing the wounds of history that sustain cycles of revenge, especially where cultures and civilizations meet. Strengthening the moral and spiritual dimensions of democracy, so challenging selfish interests and corruption. Helping individuals and families to counter the climate of blame and selfishness with a culture of care and personal responsibility. Strengthening the motivation of care and moral commitment in economic life and thinking, in order to create jobs, correct economic and environmental imbalance, and tackle the root causes of poverty. Rebuilding a sense of community and hope in cities and tackling the causes of racial and communal discrimination. Forging networks among people from different cultures and faiths based on a shared commitment to work for reconciliation, justice, and peace.

Filming for Human Security
I believe that all people, regardless of where they come from or who they are, deserve human security. This means a life of dignity, free from fear and free from want.
The Caux Forum for Human Security, a conference which takes place in July, strives to make this a global reality.
To raise money for this year's Caux Forum, I have challenged myself to create a short video every day from May 20 to 27 about what human security means to me and to others. I will make these videos available online for everyone to watch.
Every little bit will help us support the incredible work of individuals and groups around the world: www.cauxforum.net/fundraising.
Any support you can give will be very much appreciated! I look forward to sharing my videos with you.
