Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung/Heinrich Böll Foundation (hbs) is one of six political foundations in Germany. It is associated with the German Green Party (Alliance 90/The Greens), but works independently and nurtures a spirit of intellectual openness. We are a think tank for green visions and projects that provides a platform for international dialogue.

In China, Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung works in cooperation with the China Association for NGO Cooperation (CANGO). We also work with governmental departments and think tanks, academic institutions and civil society organizations. Our activities in China are focused on three main areas: Ecology and Sustainable Development, Social Developments and Gender Equality, Globalization and China’s Role in Global Governance. Our aim is to promote mutual understanding between China and Germany as well as Europe.
