contakt-citoyenneté supports individuals with good project ideas to promote intercultural integration in Switzerland

contakt-citoyenneté is a support programme of Migros Culture Percentage and the Federal Commission on Migration. It supports projects which promote intercultural integration, providing both financial support and expert advice. The Swiss Academy for Development (SAD) supports this national integration programme and has been involved from the outset.

Out of almost 100 project ideas that were submitted to contakt-citoyenneté, 30 were chosen in May 2012. Projects were selected because of their potential to breathe new life into Switzerland’s culture of integration, open new areas of exchange which cross cultural borders and find innovative ways to move towards intercultural dialogue. Whenever possible, these projects are run by volunteers. SAD has worked with the contakt-citoyenneté programme since it was launched.
