  • Spring is not only the time of new beginnings in nature, but also at the Association for the Promotion of International Relations.

    On 7 March, the association gathered for its annual general meeting, and it was a meeting of encounters and exchanges!

    With beaming faces and full of enthusiasm, important decisions were made and exciting plans forged to take the association’s activities to a new level this year.

    New and familiar faces on the Executive Board

    The members of the association voted in favour of a number of new board positions. Silke Jeltsch-Strempel was confirmed as deputy chairwoman, while Hartmut Klein took over as treasurer. Ulrike Redlich was also confirmed as secretary. In addition, Ute Chandoni-Goebel, Manfred Bletz, Klaus Hoffmann and Paul-Werner Geis were elected as assessors. Together with Helga Feller as 1st Chairperson, Andreas Braum as Deputy Chairperson and Mario Graser as Assessor, they form the newly composed Board team. A big thank you goes to the two Board members Christa Malik and Oliver Dittberner, who left the Board for personal reasons.

    Exciting events in the pipeline

    In addition to the board elections, there are two exciting events coming up. Firstly, the citizens’ meeting with friends from Šentjur and Saint Florent sur Cher promises to be an unforgettable experience. The programme also includes the trinational youth project with young people from the Adolf Reichwein School, the Collège Voltaire and the Osnovna šola Dramlje under the motto “Changing Perspectives in Europe”. As with previous youth projects, the patron of the youth project is Holger Bellino. 🌍

    Call to members and friends of the association

    But wait a minute! The association still needs hosts for the citizens’ meeting! It is a unique opportunity to welcome guests from the twin towns of Saint-Florent-sur-Cher 🇫🇷 and Sentjur 🇸🇮 and to gain intercultural experience. Anyone interested can register via the website of the Neu-Anspach Association for the Promotion of International Relations.

    A key to the diversity and unity of Europe

    The Association for the Promotion of International Relations firmly believes that town twinning is the key to diversity and unity in Europe. Let’s show Europe at its best together and build bridges between cultures!

    And what else? Here is an outlook on further activities and a call for participation!

    All those interested in Europe should make a note of the Taunusmesse in Neu-Anspach on 13 and 14 April. We will be there with our wheel of fortune to provide information about the European elections on 9 June 2024 and encourage voter turnout.

    Also make a note: On 4 May, this year’s Europe Day of the Hochtaunuskreis will take place in the municipality of Schmitten, where we will present and celebrate our town twinnings.

    We would like to thank everyone who attended the General Assembly and are ready for an exciting time full of intercultural encounters and new adventures!
