The Fondation pour Genève

The Fondation pour Genève is a private organisation recognized of public interest. It aims at promoting Geneva as a international cooperation centre.

In doing so, the Fondation initiates studies and issues strategic recommendations to keep Geneva at the top of leading international cities. It also focuses on the evolution of global governance, the future of Geneva as an international cooperation centre, as well as on the development of the Geneva region.

With its Diplomatic Club, Spouses Circle and Welcome Network, the Foundation supports the integration of international newcomers and facilitates their contacts with the local population. The Fondation also promotes exchanges between Geneva's leading personalities - ambassadors, heads of international organizations, business leaders or professors. 

Every year, the Prize of the Fondation pour Genève awards a prominent figure for his/her contribution to the international aura of Geneva, in Switzerland and abroad.
