School for Changemakers Conference 2016

School for Changemakers 2016
Luckily for the world, there are people out there who are pushing through all the negativity, fear mongering, and hatred that bombards us and using it as a springboard for change. Philippa Watts says that she was fortunate enough to meet some of these people this weekend at the School for Changemakers, run by Initiatives of Change. Krish Raval, Denny Braggins and their team pulled together 50 young people interested in social justice, and a whole spectrum of speakers and workshop leaders to motivate and inspire us.

After a sensational School for Changemakers week in the summer of 2010, it wasn’t surprising to discover that 15 alumni and six IofC stalwarts flocked to help make this year’s event even better. They did just that. After months of meticulous planning and organising, the School for Changemakers 2011 swung into action. Courtney Straker assesses the enduring impact of the School for Changemakers on her and others.

When Professor Gerald Pillay, Vice-Chancellor of Liverpool Hope University asked Initiatives of Change to deliver ‘Caux on Campus’ in Liverpool, it led to the birth of a ‘School for Changemakers’. His idea was to offer his students an experience that would be as inspiring to them as he himself had found at the Initiatives of Change conference centre in Caux, Switzerland.
