• Be a part of it!

    When we travel to foreign countries, we quickly become representatives of our own country. In its „Ambassadors in Sneakers“ program, the German American Institute Tuebingen creates projects that help young people to become self-confident and interculturally skilled citizen diplomats, who fulfill their role responsibly while having a lot of fun. Our first project – Ambassadors in Sneakers (I) – was a high school exchange program for three German and three US schools between 2014 and 2016. Sign up below for our Young Leaders’ Transatlantic Summer Academy on Human Rights!
