CATS is an initiative run primarily by 5 organisations:
Initiatives of Change France (Paris-based), the initiator of the CATS project, is part of a world-wide movement of people of diverse cultures and backgrounds, who are committed to the transformation of society through changes in human motives and behaviour, starting with their own.
Child to Child (London-based) is an international development child rights agency. Its mission is to create spaces where children and young people are listened to and taken seriously in the exercise of their rights. Its award-winning approach inspires children to work together to change their world, leading to healthier, safer lives and better access to education.
Universal Education Foundation (Belgium) is an organisation which envisions inclusive and supportive societies where children and adults respect each other as competent partners and learn how to realise their unique potential throughout their lives.
Eurochild (Brussels-based) is a network of over 170 organisations and individuals working in and across Europe to promote the rights and well-being of children and young people. Eurochild is one of the largest advocacy organisations on children’s issues at the European Union level whose work is underpinned by the 1989 United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC).
Caux- Initiatives of Change Foundation (Switzerland) is the Swiss body of Initiatives of Change International, an NGO working to inspire, equip and connect people to address world needs, starting with themselves. Each summer, the Foundation hosts the International Caux Conferences which focus on topics such as trustbuilding, ethical leadership, and sustainable living, always seeking to connect personal change with global change.
The Core Team is made up of people from these organisations as well as many others (International Janusz Korczak Association, Funky Dragon, Lumos, Initiatives of Change Sweden, Alliance Eliant, and more) who all work on making this conference a success.
