Initiatives of Change emphasises the profound connection between the personal and global: when people and relationships change, so do situations. Many of the world’s problems – and their solutions – are rooted in human nature. Fear, hate, greed and indifference lead to injustice, poverty, conflict and environmental destruction. Yet it is also in human nature to be caring, courageous and creative.

Our approach emerged over time, growing out of the work of Frank Buchman, who believed in helping each person to unlock their potential. His work inspired people to live their values through 'being the change' they want to see in the world.

We have since illuminated behaviours that we show when we are at our best, in our day-to-day lives. Reflecting on these helps us examine and adjust our motives, actions, and impact on others and the wider world.
