Das Jahrbuch 2018/19
The Annual Report – bilingual and vividly illustrated – provides an overview of the worldwide activities of the Goethe-Institut. It gives insights into the focal points and projects of our work in the fields of language, culture and information about Germany. The focus this year is on “Strengthening Civil Society.” The annual accounts, infographics with the latest figures and the profiles of the 13 regions offer information about the work in our worldwide network.
