GreenCampus – What We Do

GreenCampus - Education, Politics, Management

Social change produces new challenges for both management staff and volunteers in politics and non-governmental organisations. Access to participation in society is being diversified, target groups are changing, and new forms of communication are being developed. To be successful in convincing and changing society, it is imperative to adapt to this general environment. The capability to act and to be competitive in the future requires on-going development of competences and the willingness to innovate. What is needed is therefore tailor-made qualification especially tuned to the requirements of political people.

This is where GreenCampus come into play, the political training academy within the Heinrich Böll Foundation in Berlin, Germany. Our core areas of expertise are political management, diversity and gender trainings for people working voluntarily or professionally in NGO’s, political parties, organisations and the private sector. GreenCampus draws on the Heinrich Böll Foundation’s many years of experience, combines different competences and offers a wide-range portfolio. 
Based in Germany, we have a particular focus on international training. Our purpose is summarised by our slogan: “From knowledge to action”.

About the Heinrich Böll Foundation

The Heinrich Böll Foundation is a non-profit organization striving to promote democracy, civil society, human rights, international understanding and a healthy environment internationally. As one of the six political foundations in Germany, our primary objective is to support political education both within Germany and abroad. The Foundation also provides support for art and culture, science and research and developmental co-operation.

Affiliated to the German Green Party, our activities are guided by the fundamental political values of ecology, democracy, solidarity and non-violence. We are made up of about 200 employees as well as approximately 350 supporting members who provide both financial and non-material assistance. Headquartered in Berlin, the Foundation has 25 offices worldwide and links with over 200 partner organizations in more than 60 countries.

Our namesake, the writer and Nobel Prize laureate Heinrich Böll, personifies the values we stand for: defence of freedom, civic courage, tolerance, open debate, and the valuation of art and culture as independent spheres of thought and action.
