We are inviting changemakers!

There are many ways to join Initiatives of Change. Frank Buchman, who started it all, used to say ‚it’s not about getting people into a movement – its about getting movement into people.‘ The same holds true today.


We believe an honest look at one’s own motives and behavior is the start of global change. IofC singles out four values as our foundation for self-reflection: honesty, unselfishness, purity, and love

Initiatives of Change Nordic’s vision

to build bridges and make a positive change in people's lives through the act of active listening, story sharing, community-building
to contribute to a world where the focus is changed from within beyond
a just, peaceful and sustainable world in which people act from a sense of global interdependence and responsibility
Sustainable Living: Economic justice and environmental sustainability
