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.
(Pandemics & Biological Weapons)
(e.g. Artificial Intelligence)
Representation of Future Generations
We focus on topics that reach beyond the borders of Switzerland and the usual policy timelines.
Our issues are frequently overlooked in political dialogue because they are often technical (e.g. biosecurity) or have no constituency (e.g. future generations).
We develop specific and actionable policy proposals for direct impact, rather than only trying to shift the general discourse.
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.
Towards a Safe Future
Learn more about our policy recommendations towards a safe future for our children, grandchildren and their descendants. These are based on more than 120 conversations with experts from science and civil society.
We will be happy to provide more detailed background documents on the individual recommendations upon request (firstname.lastname@example.org).
