ABOUT

The Cambridge University German Society was founded in 1908 (or earlier). We aim to promote interest in German culture and language, through providing a platform as well as organising events for native speakers and language students alike.  We regularly organise pub meetings (Stammtisch) and different speaker events, as well as the annual Oktoberfest. Former speakers include Bundestagspräsident Norbert Lammert, Gregor Gysi, and Karl Lauterbach.
To find out more, check out our Termcard and come along to one of our events! The CUGS welcomes members of all nationalities. We highly value intercultural exchange and therefore particularly appreciate non-German members. For individuals interested in Germany, our society is an ideal opportunity to delve into German culture within our cultural events and – last but not least – to make German friends.

  • Yasmin Fahimi: ‘Work in Transition’
    18:15-19:30
    2017.03.01
    Old Court, Trinity Ln, Cambridge CB2 1TL, UK

    Old Court, Trinity Ln, Cambridge CB2 1TL, UK

    The Cambridge University German Society proudly presents Yasmin Fahimi as our second speaker of Lent Term!

    Yasmin Fahimi is a German politician and was the general secretary of the Social Democratic Party (SPD) from January 2014 to December 2015. Since 2016, Fahimi has been serving as State Secretary at the Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs under the leadership of minister Andrea Nahles.

    At a time when the German employment rate is hitting record highs, it will be extremely interesting to see if and how working conditions will change in our more and more digitalised world and what new challenges and opportunities will arise. In this context, the topic of Yasmin Fahimi’s talk proves to be very timely and relevant: ‘Work in Transition – The Future of Work in a Digitalised World’.

    Please note that the talk will be held in English, followed by a discussion in German.

    Everyone welcome! We look forward to seeing you there!
