The editorial team
The editorial team of geneveMonde.ch, composed of complementary professions combining journalism, history and audiovisual media is composed of
Claude Zurcher, editor-in-chief
Claude Zurcher started in the written press in 1989 as a journalist and editor. In 2005, he joined the FONSART to design and edit the RTS archives website for which he publishes a vast selection of RTS sources. Four years later, he conceived the platform notreHistoire.ch for which he first assumed editorial responsibility before working on its expansion, particularly with the opening, in 2017, of eponymous platforms in the cantons of Ticino and Grisons.
His work leads him to present the notreHistoire.ch platform in the context of several cultural events such as the international congress Digital Heritage, supported by UNESCO and the International Days of the Francophonie or the World Day of Audiovisual Heritage of UNESCO. Claude Zurcher is passionate about issues related to the preservation and transmission of memory and today puts his skills and creativity at the service of the editorial project of the geneveMonde.ch platform.
