Dear Young Swiss Abroad,

 

During the last Congress of the Swiss Abroad, that took place in Geneva on August 14-15th 2015, a small group of motivated Young Swiss people founded the first Parliament for the Young Swiss Abroad (YPSA). We all strongly believe that the opinion of all young citizens living outside of Switzerland should be better represented and more emphasis should be placed on their needs.

 

Our purpose is to create a community for all Young Swiss People, aged 15 to 35, living abroad or who lived abroad for at least 10 years. This association wants to connect all young people, giving everyone the possibility to exchange information, share experiences and opinions. Completely managed by young people, but in close contact with ASO (Organization of the Swiss Abroad), this platform wants to raise awareness on the needs of Young Swiss living abroad, promote activities and organize reunions.

 

The success of this initiative depends on its members and we would like you to join our group and be part of this association. You can join us on Facebook and if you have any question, don’t hesitate to send us an email or post it in the Facebook group. The first elections of this Parliament will be held soon and we are looking for young motivated people to get involved and work together for a better representation of the Young 5th Switzerland.
