This year's launch of Mission August 1st marks the first time the FDFA is celebrating Switzerland's national holiday online. The multilingual and interactive website – developed by Presence Switzerland together with the Consular Directorate – works as a virtual meeting place for the Swiss abroad, along with lovers of all things Swiss, where they can celebrate 1 August together and share their favourite moments online.

 

You'll find a wide range of ideas and inspiration for your very own 1 August celebration
