We believe that society can only become sustainable if the new generation is educated accordingly. That’s why we at Respectomorrow run workshops at schools where children and young people can develop a fascination for sustainability issues through hands-on lessons. We are a very multidisciplinary association, from law to biology to engineering. New thoughts and ideas are welcome. You too can contribute to making our future sustainable!

MeWell is a student and staff association at the universities in Zurich with a focus on providing both professional and community-focused activities around raising awareness of mental wellbeing and fighting metal health stigma at the universities in Zurich.
MeWell’s goal is a mental health-positive culture, where all students and (non-)academic workers participate in a mental-health normalized culture, are supportive of each other’s mental health, and know where to find mental help.
To this end we organize monthly talks on different mental health topics together with experts in the field as well as fun social events throughout the year.
