Foundation board

Our members are decision-makers from business, society, politics, administration, sport or culture and work on a voluntary basis.

The Board of Trustees is the supreme governing body of the Coubertin meets Dunant foundation and manages it. The core task of the foundation board is the realization of the purpose of the foundation.

"The combination of sport, education, and the good values of Switzerland requires passion and strong partners. I would like to thank everyone involved in this project."

Reto Ammann, Chairman & CEO SBW House of Learning AG

"Sport is an important cultural asset and connects generations. Ultimately, top-class sport can only succeed if there is a good basis for mass sport and the promotion of young people. I am pleased that the Coubertin meets Dunant Foundation is making a valuable contribution here."

Jürg Stahl, President of Swiss Olympic, President of the Board of Trustees of the Swiss National Science Foundation, President of the National Council 2016/17

"Sport has characterised me since I was a child. It quickly became an important part of my personal and, fortunately, soon also my professional life. Making a contribution to an organisation that combines sport with humanitarian causes is a logical and natural step for me. I am proud to be part of the Courbertin meets Dunant movement."

Björn Wäspe, CEO Wolfsberg – UBS Center for Education and Dialogue

"Sport connects people, gives people stability, and helps refugees to integrate into a foreign society. It is precisely these goals that the flagship project Coubertin meets Dunant is pursuing."
