„BREAKING UP – Opening minds, creating spaces“
25 May 2019
THE LIONS UNITE CONFERENCE WITH COLOURFUL SUPPORTING PROGRAM
Dear Lion Friends,
Chemnitz is a colourful city worth living in and is an innovative, economically successful one at the same time. Due to these multifaceted aspects, Chemnitz is applying for the title of "European Capital of Culture 2025". We, the Chemnitz Lions Clubs, are supporting our city with all of our efforts to show that Chemnitz has a tradition of cosmopolitanism, tolerance and is vibrant.
We Serve- Best Practice
Exchange experiences - network - learn from each other. Tell us about your activities in your cities and regions and present them at the conference. Especially interesting for us will be reports about your activities in the context of your application for the Capital of Culture.
Please communicate this date within your clubs and invite other Lion friends from your area. In the following weeks, we will inform you about the concrete conference and supporting programs as well as transfer and accommodation possibilities.
It would be a great pleasure for us to welcome you on 25th of May 2019 in Chemnitz.
Who's behind LIONS UNITE?
The six Lions Clubs of the city of Chemnitz have joined together to form the association "Lions Chemnitz Unite e.V." in order to make Chemnitz, a colourful, multifaceted and vibrant city, known throughout Europe and to show that Chemnitz is a worthy candidate for the European Capital of Culture 2025.
We would like to contribute with all our unified strength to bring this title to our city and turn it into a celebration for Chemnitz and its surrounding region.
The motto of our conference is "We serve - best practice".
WHAT DOES THAT ACTUALLY MEAN?
Your Lions club has implemented an excellent example of "We serve"!
We want to learn from and with you. At the Lions Unite Conference, we want to share best practice projects. Of particular interest - especially for us Chemnitz Lions - are also projects in connection with the application and implementation of the Capital of Culture.
We offer you the platform to present your projects and thus give many other Lions the opportunity to learn from these projects. Interactive workshop sessions provide approximately 15 minutes for the short presentation and five minutes for questions.
A poster session provides the opportunity to present the project again on posters, roll-up displays or on screens.
It is important for us to exchange ideas and learn from each other - so that we can continue to design meaningful and effective projects for our clubs in the future.
The workshop presentations will take place in German/English (translation).

Chemnitz is a modern metropolis with around 250,000 inhabitants in the middle of Europe - in the direct vicinity of the EU member states the Czech Republic and Poland.
In Chemnitz, traditional inventive talent meets the high-tech developments of the 21st century. The former "Saxon Manchester" thus continues its more than 150-year tradition as a centre of mechanical engineering.
The Technical University and numerous research institutions are the best proof of the development into a leading research and development location in Germany.
According to the Business Week ranking, Chemnitz is one of the fastest-growing cities in Germany.
As a city open to the arts, Chemnitz offers you an exciting encounter and the discovery of true treasure troves, full of testimonies of our past and present. With its five sections - opera, theatre, philharmonic orchestra, ballet and puppet theatre - the Chemnitz Theatre is one of the largest and most successful theatres in Germany.
Special annual highlights include festivals such as the Saxon Mozart Festival, the Chemnitz Museum Night, the Hat Festival, the Park Summer, the New Art Festival and the IBUG, to name but a few. Also the Chemnitz art gallery next to the opera house, the Villa Esche or the industrial museum, where you can follow the traditional industrial culture of Chemnitz, are always worth a visit.
