With the strong, active, and close-knit community of German-Americans in Minnesota, the Minneapolis/St. Paul Warburg Chapter provides a background for the community to meet and discuss important issues on the transatlantic agenda. The Chapter works in close partnership with German-American Chamber of Commerce (GACC); Germanic-American Institute and the honorary Consul; as well as the German Immersion School and the Center for German and European Studies.
The Chapter, on average, hosts ten events each year covering a wide range of topics including climate change, trade agreements, and foreign and security policy. In recent years, the Minneapolis/St. Paul Warburg Chapter hosted discussions with Dr. Céline-Agathe Caro, Senior Policy Analyst at the Washington office of the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (KAS); Sven Egenter, Executive Director and Editor in Chief, klimafakten.de and Clean Energy Wire CLEW; and Wolfgang Niedermark, Head of Communications and Government Relations for the Berlin Office of BASF.
