The GLGN is part of the 'Think German' initiative of regional networks spearheaded by the German Embassy.
The aim of the network is to fight the corner for all things German in the Greater London area by bringing together all those people in and around London who have an interest in the German language and related cultures and facilitating both real and virtual communication between them.


The GLGN is run by a consortium of universities, but it relies very heavily on the active support of institutions and individuals from outside academia. If you would like to get involved, please get in touch via the Contact button!
