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.
