The Green European Foundation has two main decision-making bodies: the Board of Directors and the General Assembly. Members of the General Assembly represent the three main stakeholders of the Green European Foundation: national Green foundations from all over Europe, the European Green Party and the Green Group in the European Parliament. At least 50% of the members of the General Assembly are representatives of the national political foundations. The General Assembly meets twice a year, and sets the overall direction and priorities for the foundation.
Every second year the General Assembly elects a Board of Directors from its members. The Board of Directors meets on a more regular basis and is responsible for the overall strategic management and decision-making of the foundation. The Board also elects the two co-presidents of the foundation.
GEF benefits from excellent cooperation with - and the support of - its many project partners. It has collaborated with:
- Green national foundations in more than 16 European countries;
- think thanks and research institutes: Wuppertal Institute (Germany), Öko Institut e.V. (Germany);
- non-governmental organisations': European Women's Lobby (EU/Belgium), Initiative and Referendum Institute Europe (Sweden)
- other Green actors such as The Federation of Young European Greens, the European Network of Green Seniors, the European Green Gender Observatory, the European Greens' Individual Supporters' Network etc.

National Green foundations, the Green Group in the European Parliament and the European Green Party are GEF's main stakeholders. National Green foundations are active in engaging citizens in political dialogue in their respective national contexts.
Our European level stakeholders are partners in creating a European-wide Green debate. GEF aims to be a platform for exchange and co-operation at European level. Highlighting some of our partner foundations' news and events is a first step in enhancing this network and enabling exchange.
