Founded in 2012, Skeptiker Schweiz is one of the youngest members of the European skeptical family. As of 2016, it has 300 members. The association aims to promote critical thinking as a tool for making rational inferences about the world. To this end, it (co-)organises lectures, film presentations, Skeptics in the Pub, public protests, Camp Quest and skeptical conferences. The podcast skeptisCH discusses various topics through critical thinking spectacles.
Skeptiker Schweiz is also publishing the Swiss Skeptics Discussion Paper Series. In those discussion papers, topics and problems that are of interest to the skeptical community in particular as well as to the public in general are discussed in some detail. The discussion paper series is one of Skeptiker Schweiz’ cornerstone activities.
Skeptiker Schweiz cooperates with similar organisations such as the transnational German-speaking skeptics society Gesellschaft zur wissenschaftlichen Untersuchung von Parawissenschaften, the Freethinkers Association of Switzerland and the Giordano Bruno Stiftung (the latter two contributing to the Denkfest conference).
