About Us

Where do all our good ideas go? In order to implement them, we often need a team of motivated, like-minded people ready to commit themselves to the same values. Sometimes we lack the support of a mentor, in-depth background knowledge, and feedback from experts.


Ideaction helps these ideas break out into the real world where they can make an impact. We are a student association founded in autumn 2021 at the University of Zürich. Ideas from students on the topics of environmental protection and social engagement are published here on our platform, where other students can browse through them and contribute to their implementation. Independent project groups can thus form and be put into action with our support.

To make the process as exciting, instructive, and successful as possible, we organise talks by experts (e.g., specialists from renowned humanitarian and environmental protection agencies) to provide valuable input for project groups. 

There are two ways to get involved - propose your own idea to start a project group or join an existing one. 

Ideas and Project Groups

Contribute to environmental protection in your own way, with your own idea: be it an occasion to raise awareness in society, an activity for waste reduction, or any other contribution to climate goals.

Cotton Plant


Gather around ideas on how to counteract social injustice: in the fashion industry, cocoa cultivation, the refugee situation, or resource security.
