The future of the Foundation depends on its capability to attract younger generations and schools, and arouse their interest in Martin Bodmer’s intellectual and spiritual treasures. It is a unique heritage that has to be passed on.
How can we make this happen? First, with the help of teaching staff we intend to develop educational materials for schools. This will be done in collaboration with the Education Department of the Canton of Geneva, which has offered its support.
From the point of view of history, writing and books have a story to tell… Scientific studies abound and ours is a very modest contribution. But we have one advantage: our contribution is based on our own original documents. With feedback from the public we will continue to improve and develop our materials and outreach.
This section of the website is intended as an open-ended educational project that will open the doors to discovery and learning.
