'Being ethical, you succeed and sustainably succeed,' affirmed Mr B Muthuraman, Vice Chairman of Tata Steel and Chairman of Tata International, while inaugurating the fifth international biennial conference of Caux Initiatives for Business (CIB) at Asia Plateau, Panchgani on Thursday 7 November 2013.

On this day, September 21st, many will celebrate the International day of peace, established in 1981 by the United Nations General Assembly. The CAUX-Initiatives of Change Foundation also wishes to fully join in the celebration of this International Day of Peace, and this on two levels.

With the end of this summer’s conferences, it is time to look forward to next year’s edition. The dates for the Caux Conferences 2014: Exploring the Human Factor in Global Change are out now!

During the ‘Seeds of inspiration’ conference, the participants could choose each afternoon among a wide range of workshops: from circle dance, Japanese calligraphy and origami, to magic and juggling. The workshops provided a space for personal encounters, in addition to giving the participants, who had come to Caux from all over the world, the chance to express their creativity, learn new skills and make unprecedented experiences – making the conference a true source of inspiration.

During the ‘Seeds of inspiration’ conference at Caux, the Intermission Youth Theatre gave a performance of two revisited versions of Shakespeare’s plays.

On August 11th, the last two plenaries of the ‘Seeds of inspiration’ event took place, thereby also putting an end to six weeks of international conferences. The first one focused on personal stories, with specific examples of disaster relief from Japan, including the 2011 tsunami in Fukushima and the resulting catastrophic nuclear disaster, whilst the second session focused more on participants’ feedback.

John Bond, who was here at the start of summer coordinating the ‘Just Governance’ conference returned to Caux in order to attend to attend the ‘Seeds of Inspiration’ conference. On the night of August 9th, he spoke to the Caux interns about the work of Australia’s Sorry Day Committee, of which he was Secretary from 1998 until 2006.
