Europa - what now? Illustration: © Tobias Schrank

Crisis, swing to the right...we mainly talk about the EU as an economic and political system, and often only when it’s burning.
Now that Brexit is definite, we are going to talk more about Europe as a place and a concept – a continent with an international community.
What does “Europe” mean? What are European ideas? How do we want to contribute to these ideas – to shape a #SharedEurope.

Europe – what now?

Culture has no borders – and should never acquire them. Let’s remain friends.

Katharina von Ruckteschell, director of the Goethe-Institut London

Europe and us

What is our position on Europe? What is Europe's position in the world? Two questions that are linked and their answers could overcome limits and borders.

Europe - Open to debate

Europe as an idea, a concept, a "Staatenverbund": that's open to debate! Let's argue with each other – not against each other. And perhaps we will find common ground on this continent.


Europe Actually

When political uncertainty arises, cultural relations are even more important. Find here a recap of our Europe Actually Week (25 March - 31 March 2019) - a series of events run by the Goethe-Institut London that focus on our European common identity.
