All the seeds needed for a better future are already here: so many people and organisations are doing outstanding work to shape the future of this country and change our impact on the planet. What is missing to reach a tipping point for collective transformation?
Often, we tend to work in silos, or even compete despite sharing a common goal and intention. We know that our biggest societal challenges can only be solved when actors from all sectors come together and yet we struggle to collaborate even at a small scale.
Our history is one of working together across religions, divides and language barriers. We believe that Switzerland is in a unique position to build on our cultural heritage of dialogue and collaboration to create the future we want to live in, together. When we develop the needed skills and attitudes to cooperate and learn how to see all our individual efforts from a perspective of the whole, we really unlock the potential of an ecosystem. Only then will we be able to truly shape the country’s future collectively and proactively in a way that is life affirming for everyone, including nature and the future generations.
Our mission is to catalyse and cultivate the conditions for collaboration in Switzerland towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We believe in a collaborative, innovative and sustainable Switzerland and are here to support organisations and individuals who work towards its realisation. The biggest challenges of our time can only be solved collectively. This is why we invite people to join spaces for open and deep dialogue, to develop regenerative solutions that will transform individuals, organisations and systems. We build structures and design processes that allow resources and talents, otherwise confined within organisations, to flow towards impact. We cultivate a creative community of practice empowered to work as a field rather as singular cells.
Our community is one of individuals and organisations that have recognised the need for a profound transformation in Switzerland, and who each hold a unique contribution to this process. Some are leaders in theirs fields, pioneers who hold a deep calling question, whilst others are practitioners, focus on collaborating and contributing to various endeavours or have a general calling towards our vision and are with us on a learning journey.
