"Lucerne is an open-minded city with a strong sense of solidarity – not only among the city’s inhabitants and tourists. We view our participation in Solidarity Cities as a sign of our commitment to support refugees and asylum-seekers in creating a future and opening up new prospects. The city of Lucerne already ensures social inclusion, equal opportunities, respectful coexistence and human dignity in all stages of life by implementing a variety of measures in schools and assisting children at an early age, as well as facilitating linguistic and professional integration.

In exchange with other European cities, we continue to foster social cohesion and integration."
