In 2018 the SSS would like to promote the natural history collections held in Switzerland. We propose to organize a common event in all of Switzerland in the form of an open-door day on natural history collections.
When: Saturday 17 Nov 2018
Where: in your institution! All over Switzerland, in museums, herbariums, universities or any other research institutes that hold natural history collections.
How: visit of the collections, conference on the role of collections, presentation of scientific specimens, presentation of your latest new species (cf. the 2015's poster), etc. Any public-oriented activity on collections can be proposed!
The message: based on a booklet (in French-German-Italian) explaining the importance of collections, their role in the future, why we still need to collect, the reasons why we are keeping and working on them etc.
Save the date! Check our website for updates on this project.
The Society annual meeting
One day (odd years) or two days (even years), usually in November.
This meeting includes seminars, talks, the SSS general assembly, workshop on methods or softwares...
Open to all, members or not!
