participating in foraus’ Policy Kitchen, October 2, 2018

foraus – Swiss Forum on Foreign Policy has developed Policy Kitchen, an original concept for addressing pressing global political issues in a participatory setting, based on the belief in the power of collective intelligence. The Policy Kitchen is a crowd-sourcing platform, which brings together experts with anyone who wants to participate, and fosters the co-creation of original solutions for change. During automn 2018, foraus focuses on Biodiversity, leading to seven “Policy Cooking Days” in Switzerland and abroad.

Cook with us in the Policy Kitchen to develop policy recipes for decision makers. Policy Kitchen is designed co-create solutions for global political challenges, using a digital platform and a series of Policy Cooking workshops in different cities.

Biodiversity is essential for the future of humankind, yet we see dramatic levels of decline. Join this Policy Cooking Day and tackle biodiversity loss from the angles of global governance, trade and development cooperation with the help of peers and experts. The best ideas will be selected by the crowd and a high-level jury to be developed into full policy recipes. Subsequently, the authors will benefit from a political communications campaign by foraus to facilitate real impact with crowd-sourced ideas. – foraus Swiss Forum on Foreign Policy
