We work with 160 project partners in over 60 countries and currently maintain 29 international offices. Following Heinrich Böll’s exhortation for citizens to get involved in politics, we aim to inspire others to do the same.


The Heinrich Böll Foundation is part of the Green political movement that has developed worldwide as a response to the traditional politics of socialism, liberalism, and conservatism. Our main tenets are ecology and sustainability, democracy and human rights, self-determination and justice. We Are a Green Think Tank and an International Policy Network.
