GENEVA

Overview

Home to the Red Cross, Geneva is also the base of The World Economic Forum (WEF), an international organization that brings together world leaders from the realms of politics and business to discuss and shape future policies. For groups with an interest in politics, Geneva is a great place to visit and is the epitome of a country that impacts on a truly global scale.

As famous for its chocolate and cheese as it’s skiing, Switzerland is a wonderful destination for food technology groups. Whilst in Geneva, enjoy a visit to the Chocolatiere Rapp where students will receive a presentation and be educated in the art of chocolate making – with a free tasting of course! In addition, the ever-popular Alimentarium Food Museum, close to Geneva, explores all aspects of food and nutrition and is a truly unique experience.

For the budding scientist, no visit to Geneva is complete without a visit to CERN (home to The Large Hadron Collider) where physicists and engineers use the world’s largest and most complex scientific instruments to study particle matter.
