Social program


Geneva is an unparalleled city. For this reason, we have made the choice of escaping from the usual social program (i.e., cows and Swiss cheese...) and help you to discover the many different facets of Calvin's preferred city. We hope you will appreciate.

Where? Uni Carl Vogt (Boulevard Carl-Vogt 66). Please type the conference will take place.

Wednesday 27 July: Visits and informal dinner

Two different visits are possible:

  • Tour of the city of Geneva. The visit will take 3 hours and includes 1 hour bus visit of the International Quartier and a 2 hour walking tour of the Old Town.

Please choose the one you prefer (form at the bottom). After the visits, both groups will meet for a relaxing, informal dinner. The dinner will take place in Creux-de-Genthod, a lovely place by the lake. The menu will be typical Geneva's: perches du lac.
