The Goethe-Institut is the cultural institute of the Federal Republic of Germany with a global reach.
We promote knowledge of the German language abroad and foster international cultural cooperation. We convey a comprehensive image of Germany by providing information about cultural, social and political life in our nation. Our cultural and educational programs encourage intercultural dialogue and enable cultural involvement. They strengthen the development of structures in civil society and foster worldwide mobility.
With our network of Goethe-Institutes, Goethe Centers, cultural societies, reading rooms and exam and language learning centers, we have been the first point of contact for many with Germany for over sixty years. Our long-lasting partnerships with leading institutions and individuals in over ninety countries create enduring trust in Germany. We are partners for all who actively engage with Germany and its culture, working independently and without political ties.

We bring school and industry into conversation as an agency for educational communication. Teachers, educators, school and day-care centers benefit from practical, up-to-date topics from the field, which we tailor for education and training. We offer professional support to companies, institutions or foundations for the pedagogical, didactic, educational and curriculum-related preparation of topics. The focus is on STEM education, economic education, digital education and primary education.
