As the largest mediator organisation involved in German foreign cultural policy, the Goethe-Institut also represents a united Europe in the world. In tandem with other European cultural institutions, it works for European cohesion and stands for shared values - a reportage.
Examples of our work
In 2019, then German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron signed a new bilateral friendship agreement. The Aachen Treaty also agreed to establish Franco-German Cultural Institutes (DFKI).
We enable people to experience Europe in the guest countries through partnerships with our European partners. We contribute to shaping the European foreign cultural and educational policy. In our collaboration with other European cultural institutions, the partnership within the association of national cultural institutes EUNIC plays an important role.
