Green. Liberal. Progressive.
We’re the open political lab of the green liberals. We intend to awaken creative forward thinking in politics and enable innovative solutions. Our general stance is liberal, progressive and optimistic. We’re open for anyone wishing to tread new paths in politics.
In our workshops we collect ideas, allow them to simmer and filter their essence. Participants can propose ideas and develop these further with others.
Our proposals are analyzed with experts and visionaries from academia, economy and politics. Together we find the suitable formula.
The task force sharpens the proposals, brews a political product from the formula and pours it into parliament.
Why a political lab?
We develop our political lab, generate the first political products and take care of all organizational matters.
How we came about
The glp Lab is a grassroots initiative which updates and reinterprets the Swiss militia system for the 21st century. The increased mobility of the current generations, makes it difficult to enter politics through the traditional channel of local politics. In addition, more and more people want to get involved in specific projects.
Discussions after the Swiss elections in 2015 gave rise to the idea of a political laboratory that would make it possible to shape politics apart from the traditional party structures. We were inspired by the NEOSLab in Vienna, the think-tank of the Austrian party NEOS, by the Swiss foreign policy think tank Foraus and the Swiss political movement Operation Libero.
