Policy Program | Bundestag and Congress Staffers Exchange Program
The Aspen Bundestag and Congress Staffers Exchange Program celebrated its five-year anniversary this year. The program brings together 20 young staffers from the US Congress and the German Bundestag who spend one week in Washington, DC as well as one week in Berlin. During their stay in Berlin, the participants met with experts in the field of urban development and mobility as well as multilateral organizations and visited various governmental and private institutions of Germany’s capital city. As part of their cultural program, the staffers visited Cecilienhof Castle and discovered downtown Berlin by boat. The Program is supported by the Transatlantic Program of the Federal Republic of Germany with funds from the European Recovery Program of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy. Aspen Germany is the project coordinator on behalf of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy.
