Greeting from The President of the Swiss Confederation Didier Burkhalter to the Swiss Abroad on 1 August 2014.
The 1st August 2014 pin badge is dedicated to the Swiss abroad. In the shape of a map of the world, it illustrates the presence of Swiss citizens across the planet. The famous pin badge, familiar to all Swiss people who celebrate the national day wherever they are in the world, has been produced by Pro Patria since 1923.
"Information Technologies and Social Media" is this year's topic of the Congress of the Swiss Abroad and the seminar. During one week, youngsters from all over the world have the opportunity to exchange their ideas and opinions. Together, we will organise a discussion panel and learn more about the projects of the Swiss youth. Excursions and outdoor activities will round up the program. Join us!
