Public Dialogue

Leading a meaningful dialogue with the public & experiencing digital together

At the heart of digitalswitzerland’s activities lie the questions, fears and curiosity of the Swiss public. What does digitalisation mean in concrete terms for all of us?

Digital Day

For this reason, digitalswitzerland launched the Swiss Digital Day. The next Digital Day will take place across Switzerland on 3 November 2020.

Our guiding principle behind this year’s edition: Shape your future!

On this special day of action, digitalswitzerland and its partners are working alongside the public to transform the country into a platform for participative cooperation. Together, ideas and solutions for the sustainable development of a digital Switzerland will be formulated. More than 150 free-of-charge events offer the opportunity to gather information, learn, participate and ultimately help shape the future.

The first Digital Day was held in 2017. Together with more than 40 partner companies and institutions under the patronage of Swiss President Doris Leuthard and Federal Councilor Johann Schneider-Ammann, digitalswitzerland started a dialogue with the Swiss public and made digitalisation a unique experience.


A second successful edition in 2018, patronaged by federal president Alain Berset and Federal Councilor Johann Schneider Ammann and supported by Federal Councilor Ignazio Cassis, offered countless activities in over 12 cities across the country and in Vaduz (Liechtenstein) to enable the public to learn, experience and discuss digitalisation in all its facets.

The third Digital Day took place last year on 3 September. Even more people, partners and regions than ever before were involved in this important day dedicated to all things digital! Offering yet more opportunities for the public to actively participate in discussions and make their voices heard.
