  • Films to watch – Over the past 50 years Initiatives of Change has produced documentary films through personal change and transformation, which explore faith-based approaches to forgiveness, reconciliation, conflict resolution and peace-building, inter-religious dialogue and cross-cultural encounters, social and cultural renewal after war, economic development and environmental protection. Films like The Imam and the Pastor (2006), An African Answer (2010) and Zahra (2011) portray the work of people around the world who took initiatives in all these areas.


Initiatives of Change is a worldwide movement of people of many cultures and backgrounds, who are committed to the transformation of society through changes in human motives and behaviour, starting with their own.

We work to inspire, equip and connect people to address urgent issues, ranging from the personal to the global. We particularly focus on relationship-healing; developing trust-worthy leadership; and building sustainable communities. We are faith-based and believe that anyone can find a part to play if they seek their true calling, whether or not they are believers.

Our vision is of a transformed society founded on personal change, in which everyone can find and follow their vocation.

Our mission is:

  • to live by our values and inspire others to do the same;
  • to equip people to play their part in building a better society;
  • to take focused action alongside others who share our vision locally, nationally and globally
