The Heinrich-Boell-Foundation Brandenburg e.V. was founded in 1990 as an educational institution under the name “Brandung – workshop for civic education”. It is located in Potsdam, Germany. The name has been changed in 1999 as sixteen state-foundations and the federal Heinrich-Boell-Foundation developed into a confederation. While working inherently independent, the foundation is affiliated with the Green Party in Brandenburg.
