Our friend Laurent Rebeaud is gone


We have the immense sad to announce the death of Laurent Rebeaud on the night of Dec. 10 to 11, 2015, following an accident. Lawrence worked for a year with us as a member of the coordinating team for the federal initiative. His commitment was most recently illustrated by the filing of a premise to the City of Lausanne for the establishment of a pilot basic income.

It was especially a journalist, a founding member of the Swiss Green Party, Municipal Councillor in Lausanne, 1985-1994 National Advisor and musician. It was a rich personality, very competent and at the same time, modest, warm and accessible. He was well soon became a dear friend to many of us and leaves a void that the sacred will be difficult to fill. We are thinking with his family, friends and our friends the Greens Lausanne with whom we share the mourning.

Laurent, thank you for your help and your warm presence that still inspire our actions long for our beautiful common project!
