Water, fire, earth and air: without these there is no life. People know this, and they have made use of the elements. The result was progress. But where are the limits of growth? Now that the natural equilibrium has been destabilised in many places – and has in some cases been lost forever – an era of rethinking has now begun.
The exhibition "Rethinking: Learning from Nature"
which is all about sustainability will be displayed for two weeks at Goethe Institute Mumbai. For German learners in our partner schools there will be group tours (with rally) as well as a host of allied programmes

What makes my city special? And how can one capture this atmosphere and showcase them to viewers from another city, another culture? With these questions in mind began the intercultural photo project „Show your city“
, organised by the Goethe-Institut for students from partner schools in Mumbai and Stuttgart. 15 young learners of German from 7 schools in Mumbai took part oin this project. Through workshops and excursions and guided by professionals from the field of photography, the youngsters acquired not only camera-skills but also - and more importantly - "the art of seeing" from different cultural perspectives.
The resulting photographs and texts will be showcased as the exhibition "Mumbai: Views from a city"
as part of the 50-year-celebrations of the city-partnerships of Mumbai and Stuttgart. The exhibition will be on show this July at the Town Hall in Stuttgart, and the same, along with the photos of the German students, will be displayed in Mumbai in autumn.
