Our Mission

The Outdoors Initiative is an IHEID initiative facilitating outdoors activities in and around Geneva. We aim to make activities such as skiing, ski touring, climbing, sailing, hiking, camping, football or cycling more accessible to students from any financial situation, or level of outdoors experience. The primary goals are to encourage students to take a break from school or professional pressures, improve their mental and physical health by getting outdoors, and explore Switzerland beyond the classroom.
