GLOBE Germany was first established in the Bundestag, the German Federal Parliament, in May 2009. GLOBE Germany was most recently re-established after the 2013 General Elections.
The Board of GLOBE Germany is elected every two years. The current Board is chaired by Andreas Jung MdB (CDU/CSU Rapporteur on Climate Change).
In addition to its domestic activities, GLOBE Germany is a central actor in the GLOBE community in Europe, as a reflection of the key role of Germany as an EU Member State. GLOBE Germany hosted the annual European region GLOBE Strategy Conference in November 2011, which focused on the crossroads of Europe's low-carbon energy policy after Fukushima, as well as a high-level parliamentary dinner debate at the German Parliamentary Society on the ongoing reform of the EU's Common Fisheries Policy in April 2012.
In 2014, it hosted a workshop in the Bundestag to review progress made in the protection of the Baltic Sea. The workshop “Challenge Baltic Sea: Marine Environmental Protection” was co-chaired by Andreas Jung MdB, GLOBE Germany President, and by Bärbel Höhn MdB, President of the Environment Committee of the Bundestag. The session was attended by GLOBE Germany members and legislators from coastal constituencies from all parties.
