Foundation for the Third Millennium: Protecting Health, Social Justice and Economic Independence

Deadline: 4 August 2017

Foundation for the Third Millennium is accepting applications for its funding program that promotes environmental protection and health, social justice and economic independence in balanced proportions.

In order to assure reliable project oversight and adequate support, they must be able to maintain a constructive relationship with the project managers and their organization. Thus they give preference to organizations based in Switzerland and in neighboring European countries.

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 Justice: 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.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Other interested parties are shown the advantages of a sustainable lifestyle and are given examples for implementation.
  • The project raises public awareness and thus improves the climate for producing systems change via policy-making or law giving.
  • Project participants contribute however they can do the project. They do this financially, materially, through infrastructure or whatever other means they have available.
  • The Foundation does not support:
    • Projects that are the responsibility of government or the public sector
    • Scholarships and grants
    • Meetings, workshops, conferences, events and travel costs
    • Theatrical productions, musicals, art
    • Publication costs
    • Projects that require indefinite commitment
    • Infrastructure projects
    • Operating costs per se
    • Research projects per se
    • Educational materials
    • Purely commercial projects

How to Apply

  • In addition to a completely filled out and personally signed application, the following documents are required:
    • Budget
    • CVs of major project personnel
    • Payment slip including the account’s IBAN number
  • Applicants can apply online via given website.
