Germanwatch

One of the main goal is the promotion of North-South equity and the preservation of livelihoods. Germanwatch is an independent development and environmental organisation working towards a global sustainable development for more than 20 years now. In Germany, Europe and on the international level, we observe relevant actors who are important for the achievement of our goals. Using science-based analyses, we inform the public and consumers, but also educate relevant stakeholder. Our topics are world trade and food security, climate protection and adaptation, corporate accountability, the financial sector and sustainability as well as the financing of development cooperation.

Stiftung Mercator
Stiftung Mercator is one of Germany's largest foundations. It initiates and funds projects that promote better educational opportunities in schools and universities. In the spirit of Gerhard Mercator, it supports initiatives that embody the idea of open-mindedness and tolerance through intercultural encounters, encouraging the sharing of knowledge and culture. The foundation provides a platform for new ideas to enable people - regardless of their national, cultural or social background - to develop their personality, become involved in society and make the most of the opportunities available to them. In this sense it is committed to inspiring ideas. Stiftung Mercator takes an entrepreneurial, international and professional approach to its work. It has a particular affinity with the Ruhr area, the home of its founding family.
