Reconnecting with Böll – An Irish Journey
At a meeting in Germany between John Gormley (former Minister for the Environment) and Jan Philipp Albrecht (the incoming President of the Heinrich Böll Foundation), they discussed the possibility of collaboration with Green Foundation Ireland. The Heinrich Böll Foundation is a member of the Green European Foundation.
John suggested a visit to Ireland to re-establish the Irish connection with the Heinrich Böll Foundation and this took place from 12-15 September 2022, along with René Böll (the son of Heinrich) and GFI’s Tommy Simpson. Following on from this visit, a book Reconnecting with Böll – An Irish Journey, edited by John, was published in December 2022.
