Aims of the Association

Association France-Grande Bretagne is a not-for-profit organisation whose mission is to be a forum for intellectual and friendly exchanges between the people of the two countries. It strives to establish and maintain dialogue between inhabitants of both sides of the Channel by meetings and debates, whilst assuring a better understanding of each other by means of conferences.

There are 30 Associations in France, bringing together 3 000 members of whom about 120 live in and around Lyon. Each Association has its own "personality" and each has made its own declaration at the local Préfecture. The thing that all these associations have in common, is Article 2 of the statutes, which defines their objectives:

"the development of intellectual moral and economic relations between France and Great Britain, as well as the study, in a spirit of union and concordance, of all associated questions"

In this spirit, the objectives of the Lyon & Rhône association include the promotion of cultural and social links between the French and British communities, notably through English-language events in the Lyonnais (69) region.
