Welcome to the BGA and our website.
Founded in 1951, the British-German Association is a British charity that promotes mutual understanding and friendship between the UK and Germany. We perform three roles:
Forum: by ourselves and with partners, we organise events in the UK which illustrate historical, political, cultural or social aspects of Germany;
Umbrella: we work to improve communication and coordination between other British voluntary organisations involved with the UK and Germany;
Bridge: we reach out to Germany (particularly through our sister organisation, the Deutsch-Britische Gesellschaft), and we promote the teaching of German in British secondary schools.
