Europa Forum Lucerne
Switzerland and Europe are in the midst of a global upheaval. For a strong Switzerland, the relationship with Europe is central. With a 25-year success story behind us, we work with dynamic partners to transform Europa Forum into a platform for discussion and inspiration in business, politics, science and society. An annual focus topic is at the heart of Europa Forum’s activities.
Supported by a powerful media partnership with Ringier Axel Springer Switzerland, Europa Forum Lucerne aims to generate a 365-day presence through effective and far-reaching promotional initiatives.


EY Carbon and sustainable finance

The course is set and there’s no turning back: Europe will be climate-neutral by 2050. After digitalisation, decarbonisation will be the driving force behind the next big transformation. Markets, industries and companies will change fundamentally. We see great opportunities for our customers, for Europe, and for our children. We believe that carbon neutrality will help us create long-term value for our stakeholders and we want to support our clients on their own paths to carbon reduction and sustainable success.

MAVA supports projects of the benefit of people and nature. It has four larger Programmes in the Mediterranean, Coastal West Africa, Switzerland and on Sustainable Economy – as well as a small number of Global Projects. It’s approach is to secure a lasting impact of the projects it funds and to enable its key partners to continue their work once MAVA has phased out its funding. MAVA accompanies partners on their implementation journey, helping them develop the skills they need and strengthening their ability to deliver.
