Arching-projects do not just think about the future; they are working on concrete and functional solutions for Switzerland's sustainable future.

These medium and long-term projects, which may already have been implemented, will have an impact beyond 2027.
Arching-projects embody distinctive qualities of Switzerland: the ability to innovate, a pioneering spirit and social commitment. They are the potential and the drivers for a sustainable future. Right now more than ever, we are dependent on arching-projects. Never before has the breadth of national and global challenges been greater than today. The pace of change is faster, and differences of opinion are more fundamental. Therefore, now is the right time to join forces, to bring the arching-projects together and to strengthen cooperation on sustainable solutions for the future of Switzerland.
