Pour Demain

 Today for Tomorrow

 

Climate change, pandemics, emerging technologies: 
we address these central challenges of our time today - to ensure a safe future for our children, grandchildren and their descendants.

Pour Demain is a Swiss non-profit organisation which promotes evidence-based policies on a national level: with a clear positive effect for current and future generations, in Switzerland and around the globe. Pour Demain: Today for tomorrow

The emphasis of our work lies on topics which have a significant impact on the present and the future.

Our Approach

Impact:

We focus on topics that reach beyond the borders of Switzerland and the usual policy timelines.

Neglected:

Our issues are frequently overlooked in political dialogue because they are often technical (e.g. biosecurity) or have no constituency (e.g. future generations).

Concrete:

We develop specific and actionable policy proposals for direct impact, rather than only trying to shift the general discourse.

Non-partisan:

Our proposals do not fit into the left-wing-right-wing political pattern, which allows us to find non-partisan solutions.

We are committed to Switzerland as an innovative pioneer which proactively addresses critical challenges while strengthening its research centers and economy.
