ACG’s Engagement with “Year of German-American Friendship”

From October of 2018 to November 2019, the German Federal Foreign Office hosted events across the United States as part of Deutschlandjahr USA – the “Year of German-American Friendship” –  an initiative that showcases how closely Germany and the United States are linked through deep historical ties, shared values, and bold visions for the future. The campaign explored partnerships in all areas of society – ranging from business and industry to politics, education, culture, science, civil society, and sports and lifestyle.

The American Council on Germany (ACG) was pleased to be one of the many partners in this important initiative and engaged through a number of projects funded by the German Federal Foreign Office as part of the Deutschlandjahr USA, as well as other projects funded by other partners, which were conducted under the auspices of the Year of German-American Friendship.
