Financial support and advice for local projects that bring us together


«ici. here together.» supports initiatives on coexisting with equal opportunities.

Many people in Switzerland are multilingual and feel at home moving between different worlds of lived experience – we are a migration society. This is the starting point for «ici. gemeinsam hier.», which supports projects in any of the following areas:

  • Enabling intercultural encounters in everyday life
  • Facilitating bringing up young children to be multilingual
  • Steering working-age adults towards career choices

These projects are to be realised with an intercultural team and local volunteers. Possible projects include language cafés, intercultural meet-ups, toddler groups, clubs, community meetings, youth groups and so on.
