Global Connections Group

Share. Create. Connect. Live Global!


The Global Connections Group, founded and currently based in Brussels, Belgium, is an organization supporting political and social commitment around the globe. We do so by hosting panel debates, creating ties between students worldwide and publishing Global Life Magazine.

Our main effort focuses on increasing awareness for political and social development in less well-known countries, while we do not directly finance projects in third world countries, we encourage people and enterprises to do so, giving them the means for maximum impact.

On the 20th of September, the Global Connections Group will host its largest event so far on the German elections! Speakers will include ranking representatives from all major parties, who will present their views and ideas discussing topics from sustainable energy to Germany's role in the EU.

The Global Life Magazine is a frequently published magazine on international politics and social topics, written to inform students worldwide in an exciting way about whats happening elsewhere.

The Magazine is designed to be combined with local student newspapers if a school decides to integrate their newspaper into the Global Life Magazine the Global Connections Group will take care of design and printing expenses. Furthermore GCGs supportive services include spelling correction by native speakers and translations.

Finally, the magazine was designed with multilingual content in mind, to interest students from all around the world in the magazine parts will be in the local language and at least 30% in English.

Enjoy an exclusive sneak peek of the Global Life Magazine published at the International German School Brussels this year and get in touch to start offering the Global Life Magazine at your school, college or organisation!

Patrick Freyer, President of the GCG with David McAllister
I am delighted that young people like you closely follow international politics and also get actively involved.

European politicians have repeatedly stated how much they appreciate the Global Connections Groups work and committment. Only recently did Elmar Brok (Chair to the committee for foreign relations of the European parliament) write a personal letter to the GCG board also assuring his willingness to support any future GCG event.
