We work towards the following outcomes:
Societies whose citizens and institutions contribute to a more inclusive, open and prosperous world. We support the development of people and societies, working in partnership with national, multinational, private sector, professional and community institutions touching the lives of millions of people every year. In so doing, we span the gap between individuals and states; the established and the emergent; the institution and innovation. We believe that cultural relations build more stable global societies.
In Switzerland, we focus especially on themes of Migration, Integration and Diversity, as well as Youth Networks. We work in co-operation with partners from all levels of society in Switzerland and in the UK.
Through our work we:
- Develop the skills of potential and existing community leaders, enabling them to respond to global and local agendas and to make a difference.
- Create a globally active and influential British Council alumni network whose members act as advocates for cultural relations activity.
- Expand our partnership working for development, delivery and funding, including across the private, public and third sectors, in the UK, Switzerland, the EU and globally.
