The TUC is working with the DGB (German TUC) to organise a study trip to Berlin for a series of workshops with the DGB youth forum and DGB Brandenberg (Berlin) region on how they have responded to the rise of the AfD and the far right in Germany. The workshops will focus on sharing best practice, and designing new ways to tackle the far right in workplaces and communities.

There will also be a visit to the Sachsenhausen concentration camp, the Holocaust Memorial and the Nazi Documentation centre. A trip to the Bundestag is tbc.

The visit will take place in January 2020 tbc.

The cost for participating in the optional study visit will be in the region of £450-£700 (for accommodation, travel, food & incidental expenses). Delegates will have to book their own travel and accomodation via their branch. We will issue a recommended travel route and designate a hotel for Berlin. Delegates must stay in that hotel or one no more than 5 minutes walk away to ensure we keep to our tight schedule.

We are able to offer one fully funded place on the Berlin visit to a trade unionist who faces barriers to participating in their union. Applicants with the following protected characteristics will be prioritised: young, woman, BAME, LGBT, disabled. Please indicate this in your application.

Please apply for the study visit via your application for the course.
