Action pour la Genève internationale et son rayonnement
AGIR was established 15 years ago to promote the significance of International Geneva and raise awareness about it. In 2022, the committee has put its trust in a new generation to continue to take up this adventure and continue to raise Geneva’s profile while adding a unique touch to the association.
We want to pursue the idea of creating cultural and friendly meeting places that facilitate exchanges beyond the usual ecosystems to exploit the full potential that Geneva has to offer.
The association AGIR aims to connect young professionals in Geneva through cultural events focused on geopolitical, international, Swiss and Geneva topics to facilitate interdisciplinary discussions. AGIR organized several events for its members, such as after-work gatherings at cafés in Geneva to facilitate networking, private visits and aperitifs, dinners, visits of cultural places, and an Annual General Assembly.
AGIR also intends to conduct studies with academic partners on the expectations of young professionals in International Geneva. The research would assess how to better integrate and satisfy young internationals in the city and provide recommendations to authorities to strengthen Geneva’s attractiveness.
