Welcome to Gesellschaft für Europabildung (GEB)!

As it is written in our statute, GEB is "a community of friends and supporters of the European idea".

These friends and supporters are government agencies, companies, educational institutions and individuals who work together on the European integration, international understanding and the peaceful exchange in Europe and worldwide.

We are a major provider of training programmes (organization of internships abroad) under the EU Program Leonardo da Vinci; of networking and training for teachers; of tailor-made educational stays worldwide for people of all ages; of non-formal education under the European Voluntary Service Programme (EVS) and of development and research projects to improve the quality of education and training in Europe.

We are working with partner organizations in 21 countries of the European Union and other European and international partners. Since its founding in 1989, we give people the opportunity to know new realities over borders and to learn from these personal experiences.

Colorful instead of Brown - GEB moves into the former Thor-Steiner shop at Petersburger str. 94! 


Instead of selling clothing notoriously worn by Neo-Nazis, the former Thor-Steiner store is now the home of education and training on a European and Worldwide level. The GEB office now occupies this historically important spot, which was previously a meeting point for the Nazi Party with the SA bar "Zum Keglerheim" located in the cellar.

Moving is always stressful,  but we are happy that the fight against the Thor-Steiner store has lead to this positive result.
