Europanetzwerk Deutsch

The German Foreign Office and the Goethe-Institut promote the German language as a working and procedural language in the European institutions through the exclusive grant programme ‘Europanetzwerk Deutsch’. Various language course programmes and events on socio-political and cultural topics provide the opportunity to improve existing German language skills and to become part of a committed alumni network in Europe. The ‘Europanetzwerk Deutsch’s’ activities take place both on site and online.

Reading and author talk at the Goethe-Institut in Brussels (14 March 2024, 18:00 to 21:00)
Lucy Fricke reads from her novel "The Diplomat"

In a world in which we are constantly reminded of how important diplomacy is and how quickly it reaches its limits, Lucy Fricke takes us on another journey full of fast-paced dialogue and dry humour in "The Diplomat" - this time right into the diplomatic world of Uruguay and Istanbul. Immerse yourself in this world between idealism and powerlessness, loneliness and friendship, catering and crisis management in conversation with the author and look forward to a stimulating exchange.
