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 supports this national integration programme and has been involved from the outset.

Since it was launched in 2012, contakt-citoyenneté has selected 163 projects. They 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. Altogether contakt-citoyenneté has reached over 50,000 people.
