The third destination on the Forum Europe Summer 2017 itinerary is a sweet, day-long stop in the breathtaking city of Geneva, Switzerland.

Piercing blue skies, a beautiful lakeside, rolling hills, and mountains adorn the cosmopolitan city of Geneva. Best known as the European headquarters for the United Nations, this Swiss city also offers luxury shopping, famous watch brands, world-renowned chocolate, and more!


The day trip to Geneva will be split into two parts: A professional visit the United Nations headquarters and city exploration. Upon arrival to the UN, students will get the unique opportunity to participate in a guided tour of the Palais des Nations. Highlights may include seeing the Human Rights and Alliance of Civilizations Room, The Council Chamber, Salle des Pas Perdus, art from around the world, a recap of the current activities, and more! The best part? Cameras are welcome! After the professional visit concludes, students will get free time to explore the Geneva at their leisure. Walk the lakeside, buy some chocolate, eat at a cafe – there is plenty to do, see, and learn!
