What we do
Developing and implementing EU projects in strategic partnerships with local partners including NGOs, educational institutions and community organisations is essential to our ambition to support political education and promote democratic involvement, human rights, socio-political activism and cross-cultural understanding.
The Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung European Union closely monitors the design of the EU financial instruments and contributes to enhanced visibility of civil society organisations and especially our partner organisations on European level. We, therefore, enable our partners to participate at EU consultation processes and disseminate relevant information.
We are actively involved in developing and implementing a large number of EU-funded projects within Europe and worldwide, both as a project coordinator and a project partner. The foci of our EU projects are ecology, democratisation, human rights, international understanding and gender democracy, especially LGBTI rights.
