Foundation for the Third Millennium

The foundation is committed to sustainability and supports projects which promote environmental protection and health, social justice and economic independence in balanced proportions.

 All projects must be sustainable in that they combine ecological, social, and economic aspects and promote them simultaneously and in a balanced way:

  • Long-term environmental: materials are used in closed cycles. Soil and water quality and availability are improved. Native biotopes increase, and biodiversity is promoted.   
  • Socially just: The target population is actively involved in the project. The goals are   personal independence, self-determination, and individual responsibility. Human and civil rights are respected, and conflicts are resolved without violence.
  • Economic independence: Economic conditions are improved by creating new or additional environmentally sustainable jobs and businesses. This requires local education, for example “training of trainers” or “from poacher to game preserver”, so that new cells using these models can be formed. The population becomes economically independent and has access to markets.

Financial support for projects must be widely-based and secured for the project’s duration. At least half the project’s budget must be contributed by third parties.

Applications should be submitted at least four months before the project starts.
Deadline: August 10, 2018 and October 5, 2018
