Freshers' Weeks 2016 and 2017 In the Freshers’ Weeks 2016 and 2017, the topic covered "Swiss retirement provision risks – campaign challenge". The Freshers’ Week gave the new students the opportunity to deal with the complex issue of "retirement risks" for generation Y tailored to the specific situation in Switzerland. Switzerland, as a modern society, is exposed to a variety of different types of risks, some of which are easily recognisable and others that are less obvious and direct. Thus, Switzerland is faced with developments, such as globalisation and a subsequent growing interconnectedness, climate change, demographic changes, economic and political risks, as well as risks resulting from new technologies or natural disasters. In future, individual events or developments can no longer be considered separately, but in particular the interdependencies, as well as connections, need to be taken into account. Identify and assess risks The group work focussed on identifying and assessing the various challenges and their interconnectedness with each other. Scenarios were developed for possible courses of developments or events for Switzerland for analysis, and based on those appropriate recommendations for action developed. Key was to work through the risk management process and focus on the current situation in Switzerland. The work on the case study was supplemented by keynote presentations and background information and supported by presenting partner Helvetia Insurance Switzerland.
