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. 

Following two years of prep work, the time has finally come: männer.ch—in collaboration with the Swiss Institute for Men and Gender Issues—is launching the national program MenCare Switzerland. The launch celebration will take place on May 30, 2016 in the chapel of the GenerationenHaus in Bern (Address: Bahnhofplatz 2). RSVP is required (RSVP here). Email us at info@maenner.ch to request flyers and posters. 

MenCare focuses on promoting involved fatherhood. Other topics the program addresses are: self-care among men; men’s participation in domestic work; professional engagement in the care sector; caring for sick family members; and volunteering in the community. MenCare envisions a society in which it is commonplace for men to care, and assume responsibility, for children, relationships, and themselves; in short, a society, in which men’s work as caregivers is viewed as a major contributing factor to the realization of equitable gender relations and social justice.

We invited Swedish photographer Johan Bävman to help us promote the launch of our program. The result of his efforts is the photo exhibition MenCare, which will celebrate its opening at our launch event on May 30 and will remain open to the public until July 29, 2016. A series of events will take place for the duration of the exhibition (visit our Event schedule or check the download section on this page).
