Canberra German Speakers’ Network (CGN):

"durch Deutsch dabei"

In an age of rapid technological advances, the world has become a smaller place. Distances have shrunk, time has gathered pace, and boundaries have shifted or disappeared altogether. More than ever it is important to know about other cultures and to speak foreign languages. 


As Australia’s capital, Canberra is a city proud to be international. Its citizens and visitors alike have cultural and economic links to many parts of the world, among them the German-speaking regions of Europe. The German-speaking community of Australia dates back to the early 19th century and has made significant contributions to Australia’s multicultural heritage and economic prosperity.


The Canberra German Speakers’ Network (CGN) is a voluntary cooperative of independent organisations, institutions and initiatives in the Australian Capital Territory that focuses on promoting the language and culture of the German-speaking countries.


The objectives of the CGN are

· to facilitate the interchange of information for the benefit of members of all associated groups as well as the general public;

· to encourage support between organisations; and

· to coordinate any joint ventures.


The activities of the CGN are supported by the Embassies of Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The publication of this brochure has been funded by the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany.
