La Chaux-de-Fonds, a candidate city to become the first Swiss Cultural Capital in 2027, has just reached an important milestone. The jury, chaired by Daniel Rossellat, approved the project, subject to reliable financing yet to be proven.

“This renowned jury clearly understood the qualities of the candidate city and the attractiveness of the project and provided us with multiple avenues to strengthen it. It is rare to be able to count on such enriching collaboration in Switzerland,” declared Jean Studer, new president of the association La Chaux-de-Fonds Swiss Cultural Capital (CCS2300), on Thursday.

The national jury was convinced by the architecture and the integral and inclusive approach. He noted that the project fits “perfectly into the dynamic of transformation that the city will experience in the coming years”. In addition, it demonstrates the strong desire to associate with cultural actors and events outside the region to create “a real national enthusiasm”. (jah/ats)

Have May 1st off throughout Switzerland? This is what the Syna union is demanding, which launched a petition to this effect on Tuesday, as a sign of thanks to all workers. During this time, around fifty processions and demonstrations are planned in the country, on the occasion of Labor Day.

“In today’s world of work, employees must provide high-level performance, while being under ever-increasing pressure,” explains Johann Tscherrig, CEO of Syna, quoted in a press release.
