Campax is a newly founded, progressive Swiss NGO based in Zurich. In accordance with Swiss law, Campax is an incorporated association. We campaign for a solidary society, a sustainable economy and an intact environment. Our activity started in the beginning of 2017, now we're going to rock Switzerland!
Urs Arnold, Campaigner and employee of the first hour
Urs enthusiastically follows the latest developments of the (digital) world. Ever since university, he’s had an avid interest in history and the subjects of social change, the public, and democracy. On the side he’s been organizing concerts and parties because his greatest passion is music, second only to Campax.
Silja Lüthi, Campaignerin
Silja combines her experience as a mediamatic with a degree in social sciences and law. She was politicized at an early age and has been politically involved in various ways since then. Gender issues are particularly close to her heart, but she is also driven by the desire for more equal opportunities and an open and supportive Switzerland.
Angelina Dobler, Intern Campaigning
Andreas Freimüller, Managing Director of the association Campax
Andreas has been involved with campaigns for over 25 years. Formerly with Greenpeace, he worked for over 15 years as a consultant. He prefers to lead campaigns himself. He became known to a wider audience as a mammoth hunter when he single-handedly fought against Economiesuisse and forced them to abandon a campaign. To give this passion more space, he co-founded Campax.
Board of the association Campax
Alexandra Dufresne, Activist, lawyer and lecturer
Alexandra comes from America and is a lawyer specializing in immigration, a law lecturer, a political writer and an activist. As head of the activist group Action Together: Zurich, CH, she has already devised and carried out various campaigns and actions with a wide reach. An immigrant's view of Switzerland and its challenges helps to ensure that the Campax Board of Directors is less susceptible to the Swiss-centric tunnel vision.
Benjamin Zumbühl, President of the association Campax, Managing director VCS Kanton Bern, activist and bicycle enthusiast
Benjamin is passionately involved as an online and offline activist in campaigns on social and ecological issues. On a bicycle tour halfway around the world, he realized that human rights, democracy, equal opportunities and an intact environment are very precious and fragile goods that must be defended again and again.
Deborah Berra, Managing director Kindernothilfe Schweiz, feminist, activist
Politicized at an early age and highly interested in politics, Deborah is critical of current developments on many issues. She is particularly interested in gender issues and international justice. It is her concern to actively engage in various social concerns. As managing director of Kindernothilfe Schweiz, she knows the challenges in small NGOs very well and can contribute these experiences perfectly to Campax.
Balthasar Glättli, Member of the National Council for the Green Party, campaign office owner
Balthasar is member of the National Council for the Green Party and owner of politbüro kampagnen und webdesign. He contributes his knowledge of the processes in the capital Bern and his digital campaigning know-how to the board on a voluntary basis, because it is important to him that Campax, as a progressive online (and offline) movement in Switzerland, exerts pressure for a more ecological and solidarity-based policy.
Payal Parekh, Migrant, environmental scientist, campaigner and activist
Payal was on her first demonstration at the age of 17 and from then on belonged to different movements on three continents. Most recently, she was international programme director at the climate campaign organisation 350.org and was responsible for the successful online to offline strategy. When Payal isn't doing alpine sports, you can find her on demos and actions about the climate and the rights of migrants* and asylum seekers in her chosen hometown Bern.
