Opening Message from ELC

Dear users and visitors,

today we reveal the new Public Portal of Global Campus 21. We have facelifted the design, to make content easier to perceive (both by people and search engines). Also the editing process has been rebuilt, allowing us to shorten the editing cycle and to address our audience in different languages more flexibly.

The new pages will focus on providing valuable and vivid messages about our platform and its practical use, new products, and the experience and opinions of people and organisations who inhabit our virtual house.

Step by step, we will enrich the portal functionally, to meet the demand [...]

Local Partnership With A Kick

In 2010 South Africa will host the world’s biggest sport event, the FIFA World Cup – it will take place for the first time in Africa. German experts know from their own World Cup: the organizational skills of World Cup host cities are challenged. Being a host is more than just stadiums and fan parks. There is hardly a communal work field, which is not affected by the World Cup preparations: transport, security, energy, marketing or tourism.

German cities have met well the challenges of the World Cup in 2006. Since 2007, they now want to share their experience with their [...]
