Environmental Projects

The founders of the foundation, Dr. Beate Kummer and Christoph Dänzer-Vanotti, have set out to make a contribution to improving the environment with their foundation. They also want to promote art, as long as the art has a connection to environmental issues. Finally, the founders believe that the idea of social business, founded by the Nobel Peace Prize winner Muhammad Yunus, can effectively combat hunger and poverty in the world. The foundation will therefore invest part of its capital in social business projects that are related to sustainable environmental protection. The focus will therefore be on the following projects, with bachelor’s/master’s theses being eligible for funding, for example:

  • Social Business in the field of sustainable business management
  • Development of alternative protein sources such as algae and insects as a source of food for humans and animals
  • Reduction of trace substances in surface waters
  • Reforestation
