Hyvä kävijä,

Tervetuloa, ja kiitos käynnistäsi facebook-sivuillamme! Sveitsillä ja Suomella on paljon yhteistä. Kummatkin ovat vakaita demokratioita, joilla on kilpailukykyinen ja hyvin suoriutuva kansallinen talous. Uuden kansainvälisen tutkimuksen mukaan suomalaiset ovat kulttuurillisesti lähimpänä sveitsiläisiä. Tulet saamaan paljon tietoa Sveitsistä ja sen suhteesta Suomeen. Odotamme innolla avointa ja stimuloivaa keskustelua! Anja Zobrist Rentenaar

A woman who observes, listens and forges ahead

Discover Patricia Danzi, head of the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation. She is the first woman and the first woman of colour to head the SDC. Far from being a burden, she still feels the joy and expectations this creates, mainly for other people of colour working with her.

A wheelchair with which stairs can be mastered independently! The Swiss startup Scewo received a gold medal at the German Design Award for its BRO wheelchair, which is designed and equipped to climb stairs effortlessly.

What started as a university project to build a stair-climbing robot turned into a start-up pushing the limits for wheelchair users. Scewo is also the story of three Swiss students who came together to turn their idea into a new business, ready to disrupt an old industry.

🐣 While in 🇫🇮 two of the most popular Easter treats are Mämmi and Pasha, in 🇨🇭 we eat Osterfladen and Torta Pasqualina.

🐣 The Osterfladen or Easter cake is made of a sweet shortcrust pastry and a rice or semolina filling, and either with or without raisins. The Torta Pasqualina is a spinach and ricotta pie originally from the Ticino and northern Italy region.

🐣 The best chef of Helsinki, Thierry Fuhrmann of the Swiss Embassy, made them both fresh today. Recipes for the two Easter dishes plus many more can be found here ⬇

Can we replace fossil-based carbon with plants?
This is what a Swiss start-up is doing!
Bloom Biorenewables is developing a range of products designed to substitute petroleum in materials and fuels with the help of biomass products.

Bloom Biorenewables, an EPFL spin-off from Fribourg founded in 2019, is well on the way to dramatically reducing fossil-based carbon in products of daily life such as flavours, fragrances and plastics. The ground-breaking concept: using plants to produce petroleum-like substances.

Wild swimming: a speciality of Swiss cities! A group of people jump into the river and emerge several hundred metres downstream. River bathing is commonplace in Swiss cities and understandably fascinates visitors – where else in the world can you river bathe in the city?

The story behind Switzerland's iconic wooden toy cow

Handmade and hand-painted in Switzerland for generations, the wooden toy cow is a symbol of Swiss values: modern and dynamic, but rooted in its traditions. And it is still regarded as the most famous toy invented in Switzerland to this day. 🐄🇨🇭

In Switzerland, the cow is an icon. Without them, there would be no milk, no cheese, no chocolate. Our fields would be eerily empty, and we would miss the sound of bells ringing in our ears. The cow is an integral part of Switzerland's history and local traditions, and has even become one of the cou...

L.S. We would like to use the opportunity of this page to get in touch again with the ambassador, whom we got to know when she and her family were living in Wassenaar. If possible we would like to ask her to contact us by private message at Matthijs Delemarre's Facebook, Martine does not have a Facebook account (due to the nature of her work). Hopefully we will be able to exchange phone numbers and email addresses. Kind regards, Matthijs Delemarre and Martine Boheur
