Message from the Mayor of Geneva

The Diplomatic Club, a key actor in International Geneva.

The authorities of the City of Geneva wish to reaffirm their support of the Diplomatic Club, whose contribution to international Geneva is essential. For nearly 50 years, Club’s commitment has embodied the international vocation of our city.

A vocation that was born two centuries ago and which has made Geneva a true capital of multilateral diplomacy and the most active centre of world governance. In a world facing a multitude of challenges, not a day goes by without key decisions being taken in Geneva in countless areas such as health, climate change, human rights, digital transformation, armed conflicts and the protection of refugees. In Geneva, it is the future of global society that is at stake.

I am very happy that the Diplomatic Club brings together the many stakeholders in international Geneva. Sharing and exchanging make it possible to forge bonds of friendship that give rise to fruitful collaborations.

On behalf of the municipal authorities, I thank the Diplomatic Club for its actions in support of international Geneva and wish it a very bright future.

Frédérique Perler
