The bus tour continues!

The mobile exhibition in the bus presents information on the subject of human trafficking in Switzerland and globally. With the help of concrete stories, visitors can discover what human trafficking is, how to identify potential victims and who to contact in case of suspicion.

The information bus was inaugurated on the 18th of October 2017 in Bern. From October 2017 to December 2018, it travelled across Switzerland with 29 stops in 12 different cantons.

This year the bus will be used once again to raise awareness on the topic – no longer just among the general population, but students (from 15 years onwards) in particular. Depending on interest, the bus visit can also be combined with presentations or workshops.

Are you interested in a bus stop at your school or in your canton? Contact the International Organization for Migration in Bern (iombern@iom.int; +41 31 350 82 11) for further information.

 

Pink Glasses

The pink glasses are a symbol for the unrealistic vision that victims of trafficking often have before they enter the transit or destination country. They leave their home country with great hopes: to earn enough money to care for their family left behind! A new perspective! A unique chance! A better life! Victims are deceived and soon realize that reality is harsh, and different. Their hopes and dreams are broken. Reality is very distant from a life seen through pink glasses. They become victims of exploitation and abuse.

At the same time the slogan „don’t be blinded!“ also targets the Swiss population. Human trafficking is a phenomenon that exists around the world. In Switzerland also, human beings become victims of exploitation and trafficking. Don’t be blinded – open your eyes!
