The Youth Service will organise the annual youth seminar as part of the congress from 13 to 20 August 2017. We are focussing on the topic of “The Swiss at home and abroad – one world”. The emphasis will be placed on dialogue between the Swiss at home and abroad and we will look at how the perspectives of the Swiss Abroad differ from those of their compatriots at home. The programme contains elements of leisure time, culture and politics.
