Our country's strong tradition of establishing associations is definitely something one could call "typically German". Such organizations (which are often also referred to as clubs) are founded by people with a wide variety of common goals or interests, such as:
- Social interests
- Youth issues
- Parents' issues
- Animal protection
Many people, including a great many children and teenagers, are members of an association. This entails taking on one or more responsibilities within the organization on a voluntary basis. Of course, membership also comes with all the benefits an association provides. It is also a way to meet plenty of people with similar interests. If you are looking to interact with like-minded people in your area and engage in fun, worthwhile recreational activities together, joining an association is an excellent and affordable way to do so.
The stakeholder of the Karlsruhe TechnologyRegion has added an area to their website that enables you to search for associations within your own personal field of interests. This overview is arranged alphabetically and should not be considered exhaustive.
