The Alexander-von-Humboldt-Gesellschaft was founded in April 1990 in Berlin. It is an open, independent and democratic coalition of friends of Latin America, which members are interested in having contact to Latin Americans. In a time of increasing hatred against foreigners the society wants to develop appreciation for different cultures and ways of life, wants to counter the globalization of the economy and the culture – especially the Latin American – , and wants to take action to decrease hardship in this area. As co-founder of “Venezuela avanza” – a solid cooperation to support the new Venezuela – the Alexander-von-Humboldt-Gesellschaft was engaged in the bolivarian process of Venezuela and other ALBA-countries which where not mentioned in the German mainstream media.
