Federal Youth Session, (10 to 16 November 2014)
In Switzerland, Youth Parliament sessions are organised solely by young people. A session takes place every year in the Federal Palace where young people express their views on current affairs and set out their demands to Switzerland’s decision-makers. The Youth Session always involves Swiss abroad. This is a unique opportunity to take a look behind the scenes of Swiss politics. Issues such as Switzerland and Europe, food waste, gender equality and racism are on the agenda this year with the promise of riveting debates. Are you interested? Find out about it from us as soon as possible. > Offers or > Youth
