Would you like to inspire a new generation of doers, makers and dreamers? Are you working for a German speaking company in Australia or does your company have any connections to German-speaking countries?  Are you interested in collaborating with students in an innovative creative ideas contest? If you're a YES on all fronts, please keep reading.

Your role in the project and your company’s involvement would be kept to a minimum. We would simply like to give the student groups the chance to get to know your company and it would be great if students had the chance to email some short interview questions to a representative of your team or conduct an online interview or if possible meet in person around May/June 2022 and/or August/September 2022. It would be ideal, but not mandatory, if this person was a German-speaking employee.

To find out more register your interest or please email: anna-lena.schenck@goethe.de.
