Offers for young Swiss Abroad aged 15 and over

Participants of the Youth Service seminar in 2017 will also meet Federal Councillor Alain Berset.

The Organisation of the Swiss Abroad (OSA) is the centre of expertise for matters concerning young Swiss Abroad. The OSA helps young people to connect with one another and seeks to establish strong ties with Switzerland. The OSA provides information and advice for young people, represents their interests and provides them with an attractive range of holiday and educational offers in Switzerland.

Before the Congress of the Swiss Abroad in Basel on the topic of “The Swiss at home and abroad – one world”, the Youth Service is organising a seminar where participants will take an in-depth look at Switzerland. This will focus on topics such as migration, politics, culture and mobility. To what extent does the outlook of young Swiss people abroad differ from that of their counterparts living in Switzerland? The group will meet youngsters from Basel and the Youth Parliament of the Swiss Abroad. The results will be presented to the audience at the Congress of the Swiss Abroad and the group will meet Federal Councillor Alain Berset.

In addition to participation in the congress and workshops, an attractive and varied recreational programme will be provided. Participants will also have the opportunity to explore the city of Basel.

The seminar will take place from 13 to 20 August 2017.

If you have decided on the spur of the moment to take part in one of the holiday or educational offers provided by the Organisation of the Swiss Abroad (OSA) and have not yet registered, you can still take part. There are a few places still available:
