Policy Kitchen

Project in progress
Collaborative Innovation

Digitalisation enables new forms of collaboration and networking. Thanks to support from the Migros Pioneer Fund, the pioneering project Policy Kitchen from the think tank foraus – Swiss Forum on Foreign Policy is taking advantage of this fact by developing a politically independent innovation platform that is accessible to all, creating a low-threshold, location-independent participatory process. The potential of collective intelligence is used to develop constructive solutions outside established political mechanisms. In future, those interested – from ordinary citizens to organisations and experts – will be able to participate in the shaping of foreign policy issues and get involved in society. The resulting concrete recommendations for action are then discussed with decision-makers from all areas of society in order to make a targeted impact with the ideas from the “crowd”. foraus is supervising the participatory process using the platform as a tool.
Policy Kitchen also makes the open source software, the collected knowledge and the tested methods available to other organisations and offers them consulting for their implementation.
