Germanwatch is an independent development, environmental, and human rights organisation that lobbies for sustainable global development. For us, sustainable development means socially equitable, ecologically sound, and economically stable.
We look back on more than 30 years of experience and over 650 successful projects. We have established ourselves as an important agent of civil society whose work has significant impact. Without Germanwatch, some important milestones in climate action and development policies would have been reached much later or in some cases not all.
More than 100 full-time and voluntary staff work at our locations in Bonn and Berlin, as well as interns and young people doing a Voluntary Ecological Year or a Voluntary Social Year in Political Life at Germanwatch. In addition, there is a growing network of volunteers, honorary staff and international organisations.
