In an interdependent world, international cooperation plays an increasingly important role in shaping our daily lives and our future. The Eduki Foundation aims to throw light on the subject by enabling young people to discover international organizations, their fields of activity and the professions associated with them.
Since 2013, the Fondation pour Genève, which has been involved in the development of this programme, has been working with former State Councillor Martine Brunschwig Graf, President of the Eduki Foundation, to ensure good governance of Eduki, and its strategic development. Eduki’s operational staff are based in the Fondation pour Genève’s offices.
Every two years, Eduki Foundation organises a national competition for students in primary school and levels I and II of secondary school, aiming to raise young people’s awareness of international cooperation. The competition, which is supported by the Fondation pour Genève, has focused since 2015 on a theme related to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that make up the UN’s Agenda 2030.
Since the 2019/2020 competition, secondary II students can submit their projects for the Françoise Demole award. This award, created in 2018 on the occasion of the presentation of the Fondation pour Genève Prize, aims to provide financial support for sustainable development initiatives in connection with International Geneva.
