Welcome to the Heinrich Böll Foundation North America!
The Heinrich Böll Foundation North America is the Washington, DC office of the Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung, a political foundation affiliated with the German Green Party. The foundation acts as a catalyst for green visions and projects, a think tank for policy reform, and an international network.
As a 501(c)(3) organization, the Heinrich Böll Foundation North America promotes 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, the Heinrich Böll Foundation North America sponsors 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.Visit our 2018 call for applications
