The Swiss Society for the Common Good (SSCG) is organising this year’s Federal celebration on the Rütli in cooperation with the Schweizerische Städteverband (SSV, Association of Swiss Cities) and the Swiss Center for Mountain Regions (SAB). The Federal celebration focuses on encouraging dialogue between urban and rural areas. This is because there are many more things which connect rural and urban regions in Switzerland than divide them, and ultimately everyone faces similar challenges.
