The project

The first step in the right direction

GoSimple is a three-year project that addresses the topic of sufficiency and sustainability. The main element of the project is a six-month challenge in which participating households make their lives more sustainable, sufficient and therefore simpler. Divided into six phases, the project runs from August 2021 to August 2024.


August 2021 - March 2022

We will begin preparations for GoSimple in August. This includes the entire conception of the program, the search for suitable partners, communication and the selection process of participating households for the first round starting in March.


October 2022 - July 2023

After completing the first edition, we will evaluate the program using field reports and an impact analysis with the University of Basel so that we can expand the program.


Januar - März 2024

After completing the second edition of GoSimple in Basel, we will evaluate the program using experience reports and a new impact analysis.

Pilot Program

March - October 2022

The first edition of the program will start in March 2022: 18 selected households in the canton of Basel-Stadt will take part in the six-month program and gradually simplify their lives.


August 2023 - January 2024

The large edition of the GoSimple program will begin in Basel in August 2023 with 100 households from different neighborhoods. The 100 selected households will take part in the adapted six-month program and gradually simplify their lives.


March - August 2024

To ensure that as many other cantons and municipalities in Switzerland as possible can implement this innovative project, we will finally create a blueprint with detailed instructions and all important information for implementation .
