The city of the forum was chosen Tyumen. And not by chance. Tyumen is the first city of Siberia, located in the center of the Russian Federation, has a representative office of the Goethe Institute, the house of German culture, German production and oil producing companies. In 2018, the Tyumen region became the leader in the distribution of the German language as the second foreign language to study in schools. That is why the location will allow forum participants to dive deeper into German-Russian interregional cooperation and, possibly, to initiate new formats of interaction.
