Tolerance takes us all further

Iras Cotis is an interest group for the religious communities present in Switzerland. It aims to promote tolerance and mutual respect between communities. Havas Zürich presented some surprising encounters between members of the different communities, with the goal of deconstructing the fears and reservations that might exist. So we see religious leaders from Christianity, Islam and Judaism pooling their strength to drag a stalled van through the dirt: ‘Tolerance takes us all further’.

‘The heavens are large enough for any religious building.’

In a land like Switzerland, characterised by freedom, democracy and solidarity, there is enough room for all religions. Havas Zürich’s campaign against the 2009 initiative to ban minarets translated this into visual terms: religious buildings tower against a skyline that is large enough to accommodate them all.
