THE GSTAAD PROJECT
Gstaad Project is an open, online-based community aimed
at bridging the gap between "we the people" of
the world and the world's international organizations and
intergovernmental entities. Founded in January 2007, the
Gstaad Project is an apolitical and non-religious organization.
It promotes social, economic, and cultural diversity with
an emphasis on human rights, gender equality and development.
Gstaad Project puts "we the people" of the world
at the center and gives them a stronger voice in the international
arena. At the same time, it tries to make international
and supranational entities – such as the United Nations,
the World Bank and NATO – a little more accessible
and less intimidating. To this end, The Gstaad Project is
open to ideas and editorial contributions from individuals
and private entities: the goal is to maintain an open debate
on all the issues affecting the international community
and to promote tolerance and progress.
of The Gstaad Project's resources are devoted to the work
of the United Nations and all entities within the UN system.
The Gstaad Project values the goals set by the Charter of
the United Nations and facilitates a better understanding
of the work of the organization through its initiatives
– chiefly among those, the online blog.
Gstaad Project is not associated to the United Nations,
its entities, Agencies, Funds, and Programmes nor to any
of the world's international organizations. In order to
maintain its independent voice, it is privately run and
