The International Circle of Friends Association Wolfsburg
Internationaler Freundeskreis Wolfsburg e.V.
The Wolfsburg International Friends Association e.V. (IFK) provides a forum for members of the public to exchange information, opinions and experience with regard to international affairs and the impact of increasing globalization in Wolfsburg.
It is a meeting place for people from different national, cultural and religious backgrounds whose commitment to integration, equal rights and intercultural exchange is geared towards the cultivation and promotion of mutual understanding and tolerance.
The International Circle of Friends Wolfsburg was founded in the spring of 2006 by local citizens and the City of Wolfsburg. The goal was to reinforce and develop Wolfsburg’s image and reputation as an open, tolerant and forward-looking city.
The Association supports the City of Wolfsburg in its efforts to maintain and expand its sister city relationships along with other existing and future international initiatives. Our aim is to contribute to peaceful and harmonious coexistence between German and foreign citizens in Wolfsburg as well as towards international understanding. Particular emphasis is placed on the promotion of activities in the areas of youth affairs, education and sport.
In addition, the International Circle of Friends Wolfsburg organizes lectures and discussion evenings on current international topics, as well as musical and social events. Regular members’ events are also held. An important factor within the association is the “Young Friends”. With their “younger” programme they make up an important part of the larger community.
By networking with key individuals and internationally oriented institutions in Wolfsburg we are able to achieve a high level of interaction and cooperation.
