The new Switzerland ISOC chapter is in formation.

We are looking for support from local Swiss and International organizations as well as from Swiss resident individuals to develop a meaningful working plan. A steering committee is already at work, but we need more people.

If you are interested in becoming a member and join our effort in setting up the Switzerland chapter, please join this Linkedin group.

The Switzerland ISOC chapter is not yet chartered as it is in formation. Please, if you are not already an individual ISOC member, register here.

Below you find the current (provisional) mission statement.

ISOC-CH considers itself as part of the international Internet community and therefore also
commits itself to the global ISOC statement: “The Internet is for everyone”.

  • Recognizing the constant evolution of technologies, applications and usages in the
  • Recognizing the socio-political, cultural and economical implications and impact of
    the Internet,
  • Recognizing the constant educational and consensus building aspects related to the

ISOC-CH, primarily a technologically oriented body, is dedicated at promoting, researching and developing the evolution of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in Switzerland, is open to multi-stakeholder membership and is abiding by open, democratic and consensus based principles.

It represents its members’ interest on public policy issues and provides technically-grounded advice on the impact of policy on the Internet generally. ISOC-CH also participates in the evolution and development of the Internet in a regional and an international collaboration context.

The Swiss ISOC Chapter should enable the self-organization of its members to contribute personally or via other organizations to the future of the Internet by education of its members about every aspect of the Internet and enable those to make their voices heard in the development of the Internet.
