Global Ethic Foundation

SWITZERLAND

The Global Ethic Foundation Switzerland has been active in spreading the Global Ethic work in its own country as well as in worldwide projects. In addition to the foundation in Switzerland, there’s also a Global Ethic Club organized by university students which supports the foundation both conceptually and operationally.

The Swiss foundation has co-funded and supported the German Global Ethic Foundation’s work and Global Ethic projects they have initiated abroad.

The operational focus in Switzerland is in the field of education. In cooperation with the Pädagogische Hochschule Zentralschweiz (Teacher Training College Central Switzerland), teaching materials for 4-8 year olds were created which are now being used in preschools, kindergartens and elementary schools throughout the entire European German-speaking region. Educational materials to be used nationwide are currently being developed in cooperation with the Pädagogische Hochschule St. Gallen (Teacher Training College St. Gallen) for the newly introduced subject Ethics - Religion - Community.

The Global Ethic Club for university students develops new media and event formats for and with the Swiss foundation in order to promote intercultural dialogue and spread global ethic ideas to various target groups.
