World Congress 2014 in Bautzen

At the proposal of its Sorbian member groups CIOFF® Germany applied for the organization of the CIOFF® World Congress 2014 in Bautzen.
The General Assembly of the World Organization 2012 in Paris had unanimously accepted the tender to arrange the World Congress 2014. This is a great recognition of the work of CIOFF® Germany and a big challenge.
