ALL REJOICE!

You are warmly invited to join us for an afternoon of music, inspiration and reflection.

Inspired by the legacy of Frank Buchman, founder of Initiatives Of Change, in the 1960s some young people from all walks of life used to travel together across the world, building peace through their love of sharing music, theatre and personal story-telling.

The event will be a space to come together as individual artists and advocates, connected across the borders of fear to boundless love.

Youth Voices for Human Rights

The 2020 UN theme for Human Rights Day relates to the COVID-19 pandemic and focuses on the need to build back better. Grave violations and abuses of human rights are being perpetuated at an alarming rate in our society, yet too many people particularly those in power, are hostile or indifferent to these claims. It is only through the inclusion of all voices, of today’s youth, that we can build back better and break the cycle of human rights abuses.

At this event we heard from four remarkable young leaders who had overcome challenging odds and have dedicating their lives to find practical solutions through their deep convictions to heal divisions and work towards a more just and fair future. Speakers addressed the critical role that they play to inspire, equip and empower individuals, policy makers, and organisations to make societal change.

Hope – A Youth Perspective

The Sustainable Communities Programme of Initiatives of Change UK, International Centre for Eritrean Refugees and Asylum Seekers (ICERAS) and Muslim Welfare House were thrilled to host an uplifting evening of celebration for Interfaith Week on the topic of ‘hope’.

During this two-hour gathering, participants heard from youth leaders of different faiths, including those with no faith, as they reflected on the impact of COVID-19. These leaders shared their inspiring personal experiences; especially as it relates to the forces that unite and divide us.

Learning to be a peacemaker

Young European Muslims were either born or brought up here. Their parents straddle ethnic and European cultures and often have an expectation that their children will be culturally more ethnic. However, many young Muslims are more comfortable with European culture, and Europe is ‘home’. This experience of young Muslims is not only limited to young European Muslims, but is experienced across the globe.

This programme defuses that tension and helps make young Muslims’ local and Islamic identities symbiotic. In the current environment of increasing hostility towards Islam, it is imperative that young Muslims form a confident identity to be at peace with themselves and others in an increasingly turbulent world.

Learning to be a Peacemaker (LPM) is a course on Islamic approaches to peacemaking for young Muslims and their non-Muslim peers aged 18-30. Designed and delivered by Imam and broadcaster, Ajmal Masroor, in association with Initiatives of Change, this 10 week course aims to offer:

Course Overview

The 90-minute sessions each week will be delivered by Zoom, and the training style is interactive, with introductions to the subject-matter by Imam Ajmal, followed by Q&A and small-group discussions. At the end of the course, participants will plan a practical project to undertake at home to demonstrate learning and commitment to peacemaking.

Keep an eye out on the Caux Forum page for upcoming dates of the course.

Refugees as Re-Builders™ Foundation Level Online

The Refugees as Re-Builders™ course aims to empower settled refugees to contribute to their countries of origin – as well as their host countries – by giving them access to knowledge and skills, they may not otherwise receive through academic studies or work experience. Its purpose is to strengthen the capability and expertise participants already possess and to provide them with opportunities to explore, discuss and reflect on their own experience.

The course is designed to enable and equip participants with the resources and practical tools needed to successfully design and facilitate workshops within their diaspora communities and countries of origin. Ethical and spiritual principles underpin the course. The course provides space for people of different backgrounds to build trust across the divides of ethnicity, class and religion and develop values-based leadership. Through the programme, participants will identify how to utilise and share this lived experience, and in doing so contribute to the rebuilding of their countries of origin.

Check out the Refugees as Re-Builders™ webpage to see when the next course is taking place.

Shaping Peace Together

The UN General Assembly declared 21 September as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, through observing 24 hours of non-violence and cease-fire. COVID-19 has thrown our world into further turmoil and forcibly reminded us that what happens in one part of the planet impacts people everywhere. In these difficult times of physical distancing, this International Day of Peace is dedicated to fostering dialogue and collecting ideas. Participants shared stories, ideas and discussed the complex layers of ‘shaping peace together’.
