The Eternal Tour association is composed of  :

Eternal tour association


Founded in 2007 in Geneva, the Eternal Tour association wishes to facilitate the achievement of scientific and/or artistic events, mainly in the context of a festival organized each year. The association’s name is linked to the city of Rome, where the first festival will be held in the summer of 2008, as well as to the Grand Tour, this initiatory journey accomplished through Europe during the eighteenth century, and the project’s historical frame of reference. The association aims to promote a reflection on the concept of cosmopolitanism, its relevance as well as its pitfalls in the twenty-first century, independently of national or disciplinary preconditions. By fostering partnerships with both public and private institutions, it seeks to subsidize and spread all contributions which may enrich research on issues of movement, territories and borders.
