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.
  • Sustainability is implemented practically and tangibly and is measureable.
  • Awareness of the connection between individual behavior and the environment is promoted.
  • The project not only solves acute problems but also investigates their causes and develops preventive measures.
  • The local situation improves.
  • The foundation knows the project partners, and their competence is proven.
  • In every part of the project, sustained dialogue is nurtured. Open cooperation promotes uncomplicated personal contact, which leads to relationships based on mutual trust.
