In the heart of Geneva
For more than 150 years, Geneva’s international district has been known as a leading centre of governance and diplomacy. Today it brings together dozens of international organizations, non-governmental associations and diplomatic representatives. This large network serves as a platform for engaging in work and dialogue on issues related to peace and security, human rights, climate and environment, among others.
The plethora of expertise available in Geneva provides undeniable resources for the success of these organizations.
The international district is also an area undergoing renewal, as various property developments are taking shape in order to enable and ensure the continued active presence of international organizations in Geneva. The area’s public and cultural infrastructure is also being enhanced.

Geneva international district Jardin des Nations
Located in the municipality of Grand-Saconnex, on the corner of the Route de Ferney and Route des Morillons, Green Village is being built in the very heart of Geneva’s international district.
Green Village’s immediate neighbour, the Global Health Campus, is home to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, and GAVI, the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization, as well as other organizations active in the public health domain. The headquarters of Doctors without Borders, in particular, will be developed in the new neighbouring project, the Cité des Morillons.
Public Transport Links
Several bus lines run between the Green Village, the airport and the city centre and through the international district. The public transport network will be further strengthened by the introduction of a tram on the Route de Ferney.
The new Route des Nations will reduce local traffic congestion and will provide direct access to the motorway. The new road is expected to open in 2022, according to the Canton of Geneva’s Department of Environment, Transport and Agriculture. The project will also feature two underground car parks.
Soft mobility network
Green Village is located at the heart of a soft mobility network. Two important walkways cross the site: The Cour des Nobels and the Promenade de la Paix. It is therefore easy to go anywhere in the international district on foot or by bike from Green Village. Soft mobility is encouraged by a number of facilities, such as the underground bike-park.
