The annual meeting of the Working Group of German Minorities (AGDM) takes place in Berlin. During the meeting the representatives of German minorities from up to 27 countries (almost all of them member of FUEN) have the opportunity for exchange, for information and for dialogue with decision-makers.

The Working Group of German Minorities inside FUEN will also elect a new speaker during the meeting, who will chair the working group and its meetings during the coming years. 

The participants await a full programme of meeting with many organisations and decision makers.
