Who We Are
Initiatives of Change (IofC) is a world-wide movement of people of diverse cultures and backgrounds, who are committed to the transformation of society through changes in human motives and behaviour, starting with their own.
Many of the world’s problems – and their solutions – are rooted in human nature. Fear, hate, greed and indifference perpetuate injustice, poverty, conflict and environmental destruction. Yet it is also in human nature to be compassionate, courageous and creative. People can live the change they wish to see.
A just, peaceful and sustainable world to which everyone, responding to the call of conscience, makes their own unique contribution.
To inspire, equip and connect people to address world needs, starting with themselves.
Is based around the interaction of people, whether few or many, in homes, small or large groups, training courses, dialogues and local or international conferences. We focus on trustbuilding, ethical leadership and sustainable living. Where possible we seek to bring our people-based approach to partner alongside groups that provide technical expertise on specific issues.
As expressions of the three focus areas, Initiatives of Change works collaboratively at the international level on three major projects:
- A journey of healing for national reconciliation in South Sudan
- Initiative for Land, Lives and Peace
- Asia Plateau, India, a worldwide resource for ethical leadership training
