We are Circular Horizon, an association of over 40 bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral students from various fields spread across universities in Switzerland. The core founding team comprises former members of Swissloop Tunneling who have long-standing experience in project development. To face the climate challenge, we are not only working on two carbon removal technologies, but also creating a platform to lead critical discussions and raise awareness on the topic.
In September 2021, we started as a group of roughly five students. Over the course of a few weeks, we grew to a team of over 40 members. As one can assume, it is not easy to balance work for Circular Horizon and full-time studies. Nevertheless, we built up our organisation and signed our first partnership contract. Because fun should never be neglected - and, let’s be honest, the best ideas always occur late in the evening when everyone is having a good time - we have organised several team events like a Christmas Fondue dinner, or an outdoor escape route adventure through the heart of Zurich, taking part in exciting team challenges to solve a mysterious riddle.
