The Foundation for the Third Millennium
promotes sustainability in all sectors of society.

More specifically, we promote action on responsible behavior in relationship to environmental, economic and social activities.

Only a shift in values and increased consciousness of the impact of our behavior can truly promote sustainability.

While the foundation’s board is convinced that the process of dialogue and reflection is an effective way of working towards this goal, our focus is on the implementation of practical projects restoring or relieving the pressure on the ecosphere.

We believe that learning by doing is the best way for sustainable change.

The Stiftung Drittes Millennium supports projects that emphasize self-help, and include significant proportions of education and awareness raising as well as practical training and implementation and show promise of becoming self-supporting. The projects also have to meet the sustainability criterion of social justice, economic stability and ecological responsibility.

We believe that dialogue is essential for the success of such projects. The character of our work is international and is confessionally, politically and culturally neutral.
