Celebrating UK-German connections

It’s 15 years since UK-German Connection was formed in November 2005 following Her Majesty the Queen’s state visit to Germany the previous year. Join us in celebrating the UK-German connections that have been made since!

 

UK-German Connection blickt auf sein 15-jähriges Bestehen zurück! Angefangen hat alles mit einem Staatsbesuch Ihrer Majestät, Queen Elizabeth II., im Jahr 2004, woraufhin ein Jahr später UK-German Connection gegründet wurde. Aus diesem Anlass werfen wir einen Blick auf einige Beispiele deutsch-britischer Erfahrungen, Erinnerungen und Geschichten.

Discover the long-standing school exchanges and flourishing partnerships, catch up with alumni from our programmes and seminars and get inspired by some of the recent virtual connections that have been made between both schools and individual young people.

Langjährige Schulaustausche und florierende Jugendpartnerschaften, Alumni-Geschichten und neue virtuelle Kontakte zwischen Schulen und Jugendlichen: lassen Sie sich von den Beiträgen inspirieren!
