New Hanza
The Modern Hansa, also called New Hansa, was established in 1980. It is an international voluntary city union grouping over 200 cities from 16 European states. The first Convention of the New Hansa was held in Zwolle in 1980.
It's organisational principles were ceremoniously announced in Lubeck in 1981. It was agreed that following the ages' long tradition the re-born organisation would again be led by Lubeck. The New Hansa, successor to the old tradition of the Hanseatic League, focuses on inter-city co-operation in culture, social issues and education. Under the auspices of the New Hansa students of secondary schools and universities are actively involved in their own, "Youth Hansa" project.
Every year the New Hansa organises its annual conventions in a different of its member-cities. This offers an excellent opportunity for promotion and starting new contacts in varied areas. In 1997 the Convention was organised by Gdansk.
