Basic principles of the Heinrich-Böll-Foundation’s educational work are strengthening democracy, the inalienable human rights, self-determination and justice. In this respect the encouragement of opinion forming together with the support of various types of participation at local and regional level are priorities, same as the equal involvement of men and women in politics and society, respect towards minorities, the appreciation of their culture and the democratic rights of migrants.
We’ve only borrowed this earth from our children. Therefore ecology and sustainability form an important part of the work of the Heinrich-Böll-Foundation Brandenburg. We invite you to debate and exchange views on how we can maintain the natural basis of our existence, how we can live sustainably and be economical accordingly. What kind of challenges are future models of life and politics posed with? What could a sustainable and fair society look like?
The Heinrich-Böll-Foundation addresses art and culture as an expression of society’s self-conception. Art is not a onetime need, but essential and omnipresent in our daily life. Especially the involvement with contemporary art and types of cultural participation is characteristic for our work in this field.
The Heinrich-Böll-Foundation Brandenburg promotes especially political education with several workshops and courses. Trainings for further education have been developed in various projects which process a wide range of sociopolitical and current issues.
