MenCare is a global fatherhood campaign to promote men’s involvement as equitable, nonviolent fathers and caregivers.. Following two years of prep work, the time has finally come: männer.ch is launching MenCare as a national program in Switzerland. We will celebrate the public launch with a small celebration on May 30, 2016. We invited Swedish photographer Johan Bävman to help us promote the launch of MenCare Switzerland. The result of his efforts is the photo exhibition MenCare, which will celebrate its opening at our launch celebration.
Our office is growing once more: 26-year old Robert Lutz (left) and 33-year old Nicolas Zogg (right) have joined the männer.ch/masculinities.ch team. This means we now have four employees working the equivalent hours of two full-time positions.
At the January 23, 2016 meeting of our members, Markus Gygli was unanimously chosen as the next President of männer.ch/masculinities.ch. Members clapped long and hard for the terrific engagement founding President Markus Theunert has shown. Simultaneously, our members decided to support the launch of a petition for a referendum to institute 20 days of paternity leave.
