1969-2019: 50 years Horyzon

We would like to celebrate together with you

Horyzon was founded in 1969. Today - 50 years later - we celebrate our 50th anniversary as an independent foundation. We would like to celebrate this with you and invite you to film nights in several Swiss cities. With the film "Matar a Jesus" from the Horyzon project country Colombia, we show the story of two young people from a conflict-laden society, followed by a round of talks with experts, directly affected people and the audience.

For more information on the anniversary, how it all began and about the programs today see our anniversary magazine
