New HQ-Office in Geneva

The Non-Violence Project Foundation (NVPF) has moved to Geneva in an environment conducive to its mission, surrounded by other organizations, whose objective is also to contribute to building a better world for the next generation. The building’s official name is the « International Environment House » (IEH 2) and is hosting a number of organizations within the United Nations.

CEO, Blaise Oberson:"The establishment of an office in Geneva is an important strategic step for us as we are raising the bar for our operational work in order to reach out to more young people around the world at a higher pace. And working closely with United Nations colleagues is an indisputable added value. We are looking forward to inviting you to inspiring meetings. It’s a tiny office for the moment, but we serve great coffee and tea!"

The location is close to Geneva airport and train station. It is easy to park next door and you will find our sign by the front door. Take the elevator to the 1st floor (building num. 9). You will then suddenly see our famous symbol, the knotted gun. It's here!
