Our society was founded on 25.3.2014 in Zurich. SwissGeOlymp is aiming to promote Geography throughout Switzerland and to permit pupils the participation in the international Geography Olympiad (iGeo). Therefore, our society organises and realizes the national qualification for the iGEO. SwissGeOlymp strives to support the participants intellectually and financially to ensure the best requirements for our iGeo participants.
SwissGeOlymp is headed by the executive board which currently consists of seven members. All those interested can enter the society anytime. The regulations of the society can be accessed here: Statutes (only in German). SwissGeOlymp is non-profit, religiously unaffiliated and policitally neutral and is one of the ten members of the Science Olympiad.
