The Architecture for Refugees SCHWEIZ community organises a specific program for each day which will be the backbone of the Festival. At the end of July, we will have a Call for Events where further organisations and teams can join us to host an event during the Festival in September. These people will be invited for further discussions in the middle of August. Between the middle of August and the Festival, we will develop their programs together with the Festival program. These event updates will be continuously communicated in our agenda, on our webpage and social media platforms.

MANIFESTO 1.0 – GOALS AND CONCEPT

WHY “CITY IN TRANSITION” FESTIVAL?
We need change now! Immediately. Our Planet Earth is crying for help and even immediate change could be too late for humanity! We have to get from climate change to radical transition! We need changes in our thinking and in our actions! We have to analyse the current problems in a complex way, through the Sustainable Development Goals, to be able to give long-run and sustainable answers for the local and global problems.

HOW ARE WE GOING TO ACHIEVE OUR GOALS?
We will bring different disciplines together with a great mix of nationalities, cultures and languages to develop a new sustainable and inclusive city. In our case, this city is Zürich. If we succeed, we can adapt the ideas and actions to further cities all around Switzerland, Europe and globally. Many of the problems are already defined on different levels and some institutes, firms, organisations and communities are already taking actions, but these actions are still very isolated. We will bring all these local and global developments together during the festival in Zürich to create an interdisciplinary and intercultural melting pot for new sustainable and inclusive action-based developments.

WHAT WILL WE DO TOGETHER?
Everyone is invited and there is no such thing as “stupid question”! Every question, idea and action will be discussed during the 5 days and our local and global community will keep using the gained knowledge and network even after the festival. This means that there is no wasted time and energy! We have no more resources to be wasted. The festival aims to be zero waste, from toe to head. We have to show a good example because we have the responsibility to be sustainable. The festival is for everyone. We have an unwritten open door policy, which means that our programs are free to make them accessible for every human being in the city. Sponsoring, donations and an enormous amount of voluntary energy will provide the resources to make the festival and its impact happen.

Join us to transform our city and society into an inclusive space, community and place for everyone. We are not alone on this Planet! We need radical change now!
