The Berlin International Women’s Club (BIWC) was founded in 1992 after the fall of the Berlin Wall when the international community in Berlin was growing. The club’s language is English.
- We unite women from different cultures who speak many different languages.
- We are proud to have 261 members from 51 different nations.
- We strive to foster mutual understanding and tolerance through cultural and social exchange, friendship and support.
- We currently have a variety of 30 activity groups organised by volunteers, catering for every interest and taste.
Come and share our world. Take the opportunity to develop international friendships in the interesting, diverse community of Berlin.
Aktionstag für ein schönes Berlin
Same procedure as last year – BIWC volunteers to clean up parks in Mitte
Last year club members participated in the 5th annual Aktionstag to make Berlin a cleaner and more attractive place to live in. Organised by wirBerlin, der Tagesspiegel and der Paritätische Berlin, more than 10,000 volunteers supported 230 initiatives.
BIWC members collected large amounts of litter in Monbijou Park, opposite the Museum Island. They had a great time supporting this initiative together with many other volunteer groups all over the city. Der Tagesspiegel, a local newspaper, reported on our efforts and published an interview with our President. Hopefully to be repeated this year!
The main event takes place on the weekend of September 9 – 11 but other dates can be chosen throughout the month. On Saturday September 17 our members will again be cleaning up the Monbijou Park as well as the adjacent James-Simon-Park, both very popular with Berliners and tourists.
Thank you in advance to the Berliner Stadtreinigung (BSR) for providing a Kehrpaket (all the necessary “cleaning” equipment) and for disposing of the fruits of our labour afterwards.
The three organisers of the Aktionstag are inviting all volunteers to a thank-you party on September 11, 15:00 – 19:00. There will be coffee and cake, a BBQ, tours of the Tagesspiegel offices, and live music. All free of charge. Tagesspiegel-Haus, Askanischer Platz 3. Please register: Veranstaltungen.Tagesspiegel.de
