ABOUT US

We are SAGE Net.

The South African German Network is a multi-stakeholder platform of South African and German organisations. The platform includes associations, companies, federations and authorities, as well as individual members. We all share a commitment to sustainable and social development in both countries.

Our vision

We are committed to long-term contact and sustainable exchange between Germany and South Africa. The constructive cooperation of different organisations from both countries results in a dialogue with each other, which we could not achieve as individual organisations.

Our focus is the intercultural exchange of both countries, which allows us to learn from each other and connects people. In this way we contribute to global learning.

Our History

The participating organisations are pushing ahead with their respective different projects individually. Through the joint platform, however, they have been able to achieve successes in recent years that they would not have achieved as individual organisations. This includes scientific monitoring and contact development. As a transnational association, we work on our intercultural communication as well as the representation of both countries with each other.

At regular meetings of representatives from Germany and South Africa, we reflect on the exchange processes, develop new projects together and coordinate joint public relations work.

Because we see ourselves as ONE SAGE Net, we want to grow together and realise our vision more and more.

Our Cooperation

The participating organisations drive their different projects individually, but thanks to the common platform they have been able to show successes in recent years that they would not have achieved as individual organisations. These include scientific support, recourse to extended contact networks and the development of contacts. As a transnational association, we work on our intercultural communication and the representation of both countries with each other.

At regular meetings of representatives from Germany and South Africa, we reflect on the exchange processes, develop new projects together, coordinate joint public relations work and thus advance the network structure.

Because we see ourselves as ONE SAGE Net and want to grow together and continue to realise our vision.
