The Goethe-Institut strengthens the European integration process and conveys the cultural diversity of Europe as well as Germany's contribution to it. It works in and for Europe. It advocates a common European cultural space based on cultural diversity and autonomy. At the same time, the Goethe-Institut reflects on "Europe" as a topic both within and outside the borders of the European Union. Here we present you our projects.
