The mailing list for teens and twens
who speak English in Bern
(other languages are of course ok!)

Hi! We have started up a group called "Young-in-Bern" for teens and twens - for approx. ages of 15 to 25 - in and around Berne, Switzerland is a forum to organise and inform about activities. You can join Young-in-Bern for free by subscribing to yahoo groups.

It's not just for English speakers - any language is ok - of course many of our friends speak Swiss-German and other languages.

Our aims are to have an open dialog independent of nationality and religion, and to encourage integration into Switzerland and interaction with the whole world.

We plan an activity each month, maybe more over the summer.


Our first activity is a games afternoon on April 24 at the Zoo. After 14.00h, we will sit outside, between the restaurant and the Aare river.  Look for the flags of different countries hanging on a tree. See the ad -  please print this and post it at your school or workplace!
