The International Council provides leadership to Initiatives of Change. It is currently drawn from Colombia, Ukraine, Lebanon, Australia, Sri Lanka, Kenya, India, Norway, and the USA. It exists to inject a measure of innovation and cohesion to the global network of partners. Its members are spending the first half of March in the US, first in Washington, DC, and then in Richmond, VA, where they will be seeking new perspectives, models and experiences to help inform their work.
