Last Friday and Saturday, the international non-profit Oronos Foundation issued invitations to its foundation party in the Swiss Holiday Park in Morschach. The foundation emerged from the Oronos Association, founded in 2016, in which all people have the opportunity to actively shape the future of the earth. Today, the Oronos Association is the support association of the Oronos Foundation.

The foundation party started on Friday evening with a champagne reception, an impressive fireworks display and a 3-course gala dinner. The evening was accompanied by the versatile musician family Ramminger from Austria.

Star juggler inspires the audience

The Saturday programme was a colourful mix. The “Fyrabig Jodlers” from Schwyz, for instance, sang cheerful songs while they were accompanied by two alpine horn players. The Ramminger family ended the session with another musical treat. The afternoon continued with a show by star juggler Kaspar Tribelhorn.

Later, the children of the creative children’s circus Piccolo delighted the audience. In the evening the guests applauded the musicians Maria Kamaya Wunram, Stefan Frommherz and Vincenzo. The party ended with dancing and celebrations in the Aouyash disco until after midnight.

International foundation is based in Altdorf

The Oronos Foundation is based in Altdorf and was founded on 5 July this year by the Foundation Board Marianne Amsler (Switzerland), Eva Hemm (Germany) and Stefan Sieberer (Austria). With its vision “Move good things – give happiness”, 194 Peace Centres are being established and administered around the globe to enable people, animals and plants, but especially children, to have a healthy, happy and peaceful future. A future in which people learn to live in community and with nature again. “Through new knowledge, people can free themselves from their dependencies and develop new holistic ways of life based on trust, security and mutual respect,” the foundation writes in a communication.
