Vision think tank

Because it’s needed.

Swiss Society Lab was founded with the vision that a think tank for society issues is needed in Switzerland. The think tank should work independently and with a view to the interest of society as a whole. It should focus on innovative and evidence-based policy development.

To enable the development of such a player, Society Lab has been in discussions with stakeholders since late 2019. It has co-initiated, designed, and led an intensive process with the foundation sector between June 2020 and June 2021. The process has led to a concept, with the idea to get the start-up phase founded from the foundation sector.

The inspiration is there, but the process is not yet mature. It is however important that the momentum remains because there are important questions - more important than ever - that we need to think about: What kind of society do we want to live in, how do we want to live together?
