As a competence centre for linguistic and cultural understanding, Forum Helveticum promotes the understanding in social, political, economical and cultural contexts. It is especially committed to fostering comprehension between the different linguistic communities in Switzerland as well as national cohesion. Forum Helveticum carries out tasks involving information, consultation, sensitisation and networking. It initiated, among other things, the new parliamentary group for plurilingualism in the Swiss Parliament in 2015 and has organised “Linguissimo”, the annual multilingual writing contest for youth, since 2008.
