Welcome to Policy Kitchen
Policy Kitchen is the crowd innovation platform that allows a diversity of thinkers to generate ideas for the biggest challenges of our time and draw solutions to policy makers.
Policy Kitchen Service is designed to help governments, think tanks, foundations, and other organisations leverage collective intelligence to solve pressing policy challenges. It helps you at every stage from asking the right questions to creating an impact, from community building to research and production of publications.
We offer tools and many years of experience in participative processes - from engaging people through physical workshops to the management of transnational online communities.

Fmr. Deputy CEO, swissnex San Francisco
«Policy Kitchen made it easier to collect a wide range of perspectives into one place and operate the campaign on a global level. From where we stand in Silicon Valley, we clearly see the potential for more initiatives like that in the global tech governance landscape, where Switzerland acts as a neutral convener and builds bridges across actors and boundaries.»
International Policy Manager, WWF Switzerland
«I really like the format of Policy Kitchen and I think it’s a great way to tackle today's challenges because it’s based on inclusive and participatory decision-making. You get ideas from a very broad spectrum of people with various backgrounds. And I think it’s really that ingredient that makes Policy Kitchen interesting and special.»
Head of section Environmental Monitoring, Swiss Federal Office for the Environment (FOEN)
«Thanks to Policy Kitchen, we were able to plan, conduct and document a virtual conference with numerous workshops in a short time. With the help of Policy Kitchen we were able to discuss and document 33 ideas for shaping a sustainable digital world without the participants having to meet in a common space in person. A very good collection of ideas was created in a very short time, which we can now analyse in-depth with our partners. A white sheet of paper is definitely more difficult to fill with meaningful content than the Policy Kitchen idea sketches.»
