Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) Switzerland mobilizes universities, research centers, civil society organizations, business and other knowledge centers to create and implement transformative solutions to achieve the Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals in Switzerland and beyond.

Implementing the Sustainable Development Goals in Switzerland





Our network is growing: Newsletter June 2022

In May, Switzerland’s first national citizens’ assembly was announced with SDSN Switzerland as part of the project. Furthermore, we have a new co-chair in our Leadership Council and new members joined SDSN Switzerland in the last few months.

Citizens’ assembly on the future of food

In Switzerland’s first national citizens’ assembly, SDSN listens to consumers when it comes to our future of food. This is part of a broad dialogue process initiated by Biovision, Landwirtschaft mit Zukunft (Agriculture du future), and SDSN Switzerland. The citizens’ assembly consists of a group of 100 people drawn by lot, composed similar to the Swiss population in characteristics like gender, age, education, and political views. They will discuss solutions for a sustainable food policy and develop recommendations. Stakeholders from various sectors will give inputs and a scientific panel will accompany the process.



Sustainable Development Report 2022

For the second year in a row, the world is no longer making progress on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This is one of the main findings of the Sustainable Development Report 2022, launched on 2 June by UN SDSN. In the SDG index ranking, Switzerland climbed up to rank 8 (2021: 16). However, this improvement in rank is mostly due to downward trends in other countries. The pandemic and poor performance on climate, biodiversity, and sustainable urban development goals led to a slight decrease of the SDG Index world average.
