Europa - what now? Illustration: © Tobias Schrank

Crisis and the rise of the right... We refer to Europe mainly in terms of its political and economic systems, and often only when those systems are being challenged.
With Brexit now a certainty, we want to address Europe as a place and as a concept - a continent formed of an international community.

What do we mean by ‘Europe’? What do we mean by ‘European’ ideas? How do we want to contribute to these ideas and continue to shape a common, a #SharedEurope?

Europe - what next?

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.
