… and from the SwissSkills Board

For generations, Lucerne has brought together people and nations. The ten bridges which span the Reuss are emblematic of this. The Chapel Bridge, built nearly 700 years ago, is the city’s traditional landmark. Bridges do not only connect two banks – more than that they bring people together. The General Assembly in Lucerne is in keeping with this tradition.

We look forward to bringing together people from all over the world at the WorldSkills General Assembly and would like to welcome you to Switzerland and Lucerne.

With best regards,


Hans Ulrich Stöckling
President of the SwissSkills Board
