The Wisdom Council is composed of individuals who made impressive contributions in their respective sectors. They support collaboratio helvetica with their knowledge, experience, network and perspective.
Véronique Ruppert Schmitt, National Focal Point for Sustainable Development (Agenda 2030) in Cantons, Communes and Cities (ARE).
“A sustainable society is a society that is inclusive of all generations and social classes. We must continually find and reinvent ourselves. To this it is essential to address the needs, dreams and ideas of all those involved. That's what Collaboratio helvetica is all about. They create spaces for experimentation and by means of robust participatory processes help to open up new ways of living, working and thriving in communities that are worth living in for all of us.
As part of the Wisdom Council I want to accelerate the systemic transformations needed for a fast and effective sustainable development in Switzerland”
Alexander Schieffer, co-Founder of Trans4m, a Catalyst for Integral Transformation
“I joined the Wisdom Council of collaboratio helvetica because of my profound belief in the significance of collaboratio helvetica, and its huge potential to grow into a force and source for societal and cultural renewal for Switzerland. Too rarely do we take a “whole society perspective”, and too rarely do we tap into the cultural roots of our societies to stimulate cultural and societal renewal. collaboratio helvetica is an attempt to do both of that.”
Till Berger, Coordinator Strategy Sustainable Development (ARE)
"I would like to see a Switzerland of solidarity in which the various social groups treat each other with esteem and respect. A Switzerland in which politics, citizens and business think globally together and in the long term. This is what collaboratio helvetica is committed to.”
Michael Gerber, Head Dublin, Stay & Resettlement (SEM), former Special Envoy for Global Sustainable Development
“Without action the needed transformation will not take place. (Unfortunately) we cannot expect governments and states to realize this transformation. Therefore, economy, science and civil society have a major role to play. Collaboratio helvetica brings key actors together and fosters common engagement to address challenges and, eventually, to achieve the SDGs. This commitment deserves all my respect and support.”
Solomon Jaya Prakash, serial Social Entrepreneur and former country representative for Ashoka India.
