Metro Zurich

Together with the Swiss think-tank foraus, embrace provided policy advice for the biggest metropolitan area in Switzerland. The client commissioned us to analyse their work and outline strategies and measures for the development of both the association and the metropolitan area.

Embrace and foraus jointly wrote a paper. We presented the findings to the members of the boards of the association, among them the mayor of Zurich, members of cantonal governments, and leading administration officials.
