Swiss movie night :
‘Der grosse Sommer’ by Stefan Jäger
We were delighted to welcome Swiss film maker Stefan Jäger, who presented one of his latest movies, ‘Der grosse Sommer’ in St Peter’s College. After the screening, Mr. Jäger engaged in a Q&A session with the attendance, which resulted in a very interactive and personal event.
Speaker event :
Alexandre Fasel, Swiss Ambassador to the UK
We were extremely grateful that our guest, Swiss Ambassador to the UK Alexandre Fasel, found some time in his busy schedule to come to Oxford. Ambassador Fasel, a former Oxford University student himself, gave an insightful speech entitled ‘Brexit — what does it mean for Switzerland ?’. The event was held in Lincoln College, whose continuous support to the Society is very much appreciated, and was followed by a drinks session where the attendance had a chance to interact personally with the Ambassador.
