The Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung is one of the political foundations in Germany headquartered in Berlin. We maintain close ties with the German Green Party (Alliance 90/The Greens), but work independently and nurture a spirit of intellectual openness. Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung currently maintains 30 international offices. We understand ourselves as a think tank for green visions and projects that provides a platform for international cooperation and dialogue. In China, Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung has been working with its partners since 2006 and has been registered as Beijing Representative Office in 2017. We work with governmental departments and think tanks, academic institutions and civil society organizations. Our activities in China are focused on: Ecology and Sustainable Development, Climate Change and Energy Policy, Social Developments, Globalization and China’s Role in Global Governance. In these areas we support research, promote knowledge generation and provide space for exchange and debates. Our aim is to promote mutual understanding between China and Germany as well as Europe.
