We would like to thank all participants of the International Congress! It was an honour for us to welcome you all to our university, to discuss our topic SOCIAL GLOCALISATION and to enjoy the Cologne city life. It was wonderful to have time for encounters, networking and joyful reunions with old friends and to make new contacts.
All participants will receive an email with photos of our congress in the coming days.

Experience Cologne Cathedral: An exclusive evening in Cologne Cathedral with organ music
20. September 2019, 9:00 - 10:00 p.m.
In cooperation with Canon Dr. Dominik Meiering and the organist George Fletcher Warren, we offer a very exclusive organ concert only for the participants of the congress. Let yourself be inspired by the impressive sound of the special organs and listen to stories about the history and theology of the cathedral. Experience its unique atmosphere and the majestic size undisturbed by the day visitors.
The cathedral is Cologne's landmark, the centre of the city and a masterpiece of Gothic architecture. The Roman Catholic Church was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996 and is considered the third highest church in the world.
