Tools for Change is an exciting opportunity to learn from other community change agents and to hone your skills. Set in the Initiatives of Change international conference Center in Caux, Switzerland, from August 4-11, 2007, Tools for Change draws on the accumulated wisdom of the 60+ year history of the IofC network and the cutting edge of training in the fields of conflict transformation and leadership development. Tools for Change provides participants with tools to help them make change—in the world, in their relationships, and in themselves. Guided by an experienced, multicultural group of trainers and presenters, conference participants gain exposure to the core values and practices of the work of IofC and the key skills needed to be an agent of change. The international faculty is drawn from Australia, Taiwan, UK, France, USA, Nagaland (India), Burundi.
Participants choose from five learning tracks:
1. Peacebuilding: conflict, trauma and history
2. Honest conversation and dialogue facilitation
3. Mobilizing and maintaining networks for action
4. Communicating a vision, telling the story
5. Inner resources for change
