Communications for the Swiss Federal Offices of the Environment, Public Health and Energy

For the first time in the history of our agency we’re working on three federal agencies’ projects simultaneously.

Duoo (design and concept) and Polarstern (text and concept) are both involved in designing and communicating the revised strategy of PLANAT, the National Platform for Natural Hazards strategy (whose secretariat is affiliated to the Federal Office for the Environment).

Polarstern is heading communications for “Confederation: exemplary in energy” on behalf of the Swiss Federal Office of Energy. Under the initiative, the federal administration, the ETH domain and government-related entities including Swisscom, SBB, Swiss Post and Skyguide have committed to boosting their energy efficiency and use of renewables.

We have been supporting the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) with nutrition and exercise-related themes since back in 2010. After completing a major project last year we’re now working with experts from the FOPH, researchers and practitioners to create a handy guide to therapies for obesity patients.
