Established in August 2019, Pegasos Swiss Association was founded after the death in May 2018 of 104-year old Australian ecologist, Professor David Goodall. Professor Goodall was not sick. At 104 years of age, he said that he had lived long enough and now was the time to die (detailed discussion is included later in this Chapter).
Aims and Objectives of Pegasos
When Pegasos was set up it aimed to be different to the other Swiss organisations. The aims and objectives of Pegasos are to:
• cut the red tape that surrounds a Swiss VAD • minimise waiting times • offer a service that has English as its first language
Over the past two decades, it has been a common complaint of those applying for a VAD in Switzerland that the amount of paperwork required is laborious and exhaustive, especially when a person is very ill or very old. Pegasos says they aim to simplify the procedures for the gathering and submission of the necessary paperwork as required under Swiss law. They are the only group to allow the essential documents and background information to be submitted online via their website.
