About us


„Europe is our future, we have no other.“

– Hans-Dietrich Genscher, German foreign ministre 1974 – 1992

Probably we are all driven by the desire of the Europe of the people, a Europe without borders between coutries and walls in the minds.

Europe, that is all of us and we want to make our contribution to it. We want to cultivate old friendships and make new ones, bring young and old together.

Totally in the spirit of our association founder Rudi Rübsamen, we just do it. It’s not always easy, but it’s worth it. We are paid in tears, in farewell tears after every youth project and partnership meeting.

For years, the Association for the Promotion of International Relations has enjoyed the support of a large number of sponsors, cooperation partners, supporters and network partners. State institutions, foundations, companies and many private individuals make our work possible with monetary or in-kind contributions. Small and large donations are equally dear to us, even though we naturally depend on generous financial support. On this page we document the supporters and sponsors who would like to make their support public.

At this point we would like to express our special thanks to Mainova AG, with whose support the new, trilingual website of the association was realised in 2022.

From the very beginning, the board has also actively sought close ties with the Adolf- Reichwein-School and the various clubs and organisations in Neu-Anspach and the surrounding area. Representatives of institutions from the cultural sector as well as associations that are strongly involved with the European idea and town twinning have since then also constituted a strong network that supports the board in word and deed. Everyone benefits from this network idea, and we are pleased to be actively involved in shaping the town twinning at so many different levels.
