CATS is a weeklong conference set in the beautiful mountains of Caux, Switzerland. It offers the unique opportunity for children, youth, and adults to come together, in a peaceful and beautiful setting, to work together as equal partners to transform society.


CATS promotes the active participation of children in society in order to make real, sustainable changes. Not only do children need to understand their own fundamental rights, but grasping how they participate in changing behaviours and mentalities is vital to moving our world forward.
