Welcome to the Green Political Foundation

The Heinrich Böll Foundation North America is the Washington, DC office of the Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung, a political foundation affiliated with the Green Party of Germany. We act as a catalyst for green visions and projects, a think tank for policy reform, and an international network.

As a 501(c)(3) organization, we promote policy reform and political dialogue in our program areas through publications, public seminars, conferences, workshops, study tours and visitor programs. We seek to advance democracy and human rights, protect the environment and climate, and promote the peaceful resolution of conflicts. We also place particular emphasis on gender democracy, meaning social emancipation and equal rights for women and LGBTI communities. 

The Transatlantic Media Fellowships support well-researched transatlantic journalism. Each year, we sponsor a select number of journalists from the US and Europe for an independent, five-day transatlantic trip to research stories relevant to the foundation’s work on climate and energy policy, democracy and social policy, or foreign and security policy.
