Intercultural projects



The d.a.i. department "Intercultural Projects" is focused on contact between young Germans and young Americans. In our programs, we emphasize young perspectives and fun, but there is always enough time for critical considerations – on ideas of the other and of ourselves. Adolescents and students get to know new perspectives and become “Citizen Diplomats.”


Besides our flagships Rent an American and Ambassadors in Sneakers we also do smaller projects like German-American theater productions, photo and writing competitions, or workshops and activities for German-American (youth) groups.


Our goal is to encourage Germans and Americans in developing their intercultural competencies. For the content and structural planning, execution, and evaluation of the projects, we are assisted by a project advisory board that also includes representatives from schools, the University of Tübingen’s International Office, and the Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen (ifa).
