In 2016 the Stiftung Asienhaus supported by the Robert Bosch Stiftung and Stiftung Mercator realized its fourth round of the EU-China NGO Twinning exchange program, laying the foundation for a vital and sustainable connection between China’s and Europe’s NGOs. Chinese and European NGOs working on very diverse topics of civil society took part in the mutual exchange which foresaw a several week long work-and-study stage at the partner organization in the respective other region.
