Citizens’ consultations on the Franco-Swiss border

Two cross-border citizens’ consultations were held on 18-19 September 2018 by the MOT, the Jacques Delors Institute, the European Cross-Border Grouping and the Metropolitan Pole of the French Genevois in Saint-Genis-Pouilly and Annemasse. Around 50 citizens attended on both days to talk about their day-to-day experience of the border and express their expectations and wishes with regard to Greater Geneva and the EU.

Through participatory workshops, the issues of jobs, training and healthcare in the cross-border setting were raised, and speakers from the Greater Geneva Conurbation Forum, the Cité des Métiers and Geneva University Hospitals answered questions from citizens. The Jacques Delors Institute and the MOT presented a European perspective on the issues discussed and the experience of other territories. A document setting out the content of the discussions will soon be shared with the participants and posted online.
