In 2014 the Stiftung Asienhaus supported by the Robert Bosch Stiftung realized its second 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. Seven Chinese and seven European NGOs working on very diverse topics of civil society took part in the mutual exchange which foresees a several week long work-and-study stage at the partner organization in the respective other region.
