The aim of the Friends of the Goethe-Institut London is
the advancement of the arts, culture, heritage and science for the benefit of the public in the United Kingdom through providing support to the promotion of German language, arts, culture, heritage and science and general international cultural cooperation, including the provision of programmes, events and activities related thereto.
ProjectsIn line with one of the strategic goals of the Goethe-Institut, the “Friends” focus on social mobility projects and providing young people from the UK with a first-hand experience of Germany. To this end, the “Friends” are currently supporting the following projects:
To ensure long term sustainability of those projects, the Goethe-Institut London organises annual alumni meetings for the participants and encourages alumni to talk about their experiences to their peers.
The feedback from the alumni of both projects mentioned above has been extremely positive, with participants valuing highly the insight into another culture. Participants also reported high levels of motivation towards language learning and personal development on their return from Germany.
