UK Meets Germany: A Forum for Young Leaders (UKMG) is a network of students and young professionals who have an interest in exploring and strengthening the German-British relationship. Participants join the forum by taking part in a UKMG Weeklong Seminar, following which they are encouraged to conduct their own research and organize their own activity in the field. ICD Weeklong Seminars are targeted at students and young professionals with an active interest in the German-British relationship.

About UKMG Weeklong Seminars »

Weeklong Seminars are held in Berlin every 4-6 months and consist of 4-5 day programs of lectures, seminars, and workshops, together with cultural and social activities. The Seminars aim to give the participants an insight into key perspectives on the German-British relationship, introduce them to a network of like-minded individuals, and allow them to explore the cultural landscape of the city of Berlin.  Speakers during the seminars include individuals from the fields of politics, diplomacy, academia, culture & the arts, civil society, and the private sector. Once individuals have taken part in a UKMG Weeklong Seminar and joined the forum, they become a part of the ICD’s network, which facilitates communication between like-minded individuals across the world.

Once they have joined the UKMG Forum, members are supported by the ICD in organizing leadership initiatives and conducting academic research whilst they are also invited to join the ICD Online Forum - enabling them to share information and communicate with likeminded individuals across the world.
