City Walk through Zurich’s colonial past

6. Mai 2022, 17:0019:00

Join us on our next Network meet up in Zurich! We will take a walk through Zurich’s colonial past with the association Zürich Kolonial and end with an apéro.

Although Switzerland itself did not formally have any colonies, it was nevertheless heavily involved in the colonial projects of other European nations. Zurichers became rich from overseas plantations, invested in slavery, organized ethnological shows, or served as mercenaries in colonial armies, to name just a few examples. The effects of this continue today in the form of global wealth inequality and racial prejudice. With the city walk we want to draw attention to these colonial entanglements and thereby advocate for a non-violent, just and tolerant society.

The walk will be followed by an apéro at 19.00.
