Welcome to the homepage of the „Deutsch-Britische Gesellschaft Ruhr e.V.“ (formerly “Deutsch-Englische Gesellschaft”). Our association was founded on June 4th, 2009 and is deeply rooted in the tradition of the “Deutsch-Englische Gesellschaft” which has encouraged the process of reconciliation and understanding between British and German citizens in the Ruhr area since the end of World War II. Numerous encounters between British guests and German hosts have turned former enemies into friends.

Our association is indebted to this tradition and will uphold it.

At the same time the „Deutsch-Britische Gesellschaft Ruhr e.V.“ will be a forum for the dialogue between citizens in the Ruhr area and the global community which is based on the English language. If you are interested in communicating in the English language, listening to English lectures or giving a lecture yourself or if you want to obtain information on similar activities in the Ruhr area, you are cordially invited to join our association.

Please note that the annual individual membership fee is only 40 €; joint membership 60 €; student membership 20 €.
