Grants for Environement and Sustainability - effect and positive change
Environment and sustainability are new support areas for both foundations.
The vision and mission is to support healthy and balanced societies, based on sustainability and a fair exploitation of the limited resources on Earth.
We want to make an impact and create positive change. We assume that prevention is better than cure. However, from time to time, cure can be necessary.
Based in Denmark
The foundations support environmental projects based in Denmark. Partly to strengthen the Danish position as a pioneering country within the field of sustainable development. Partly based on a long tradition to collaborate and involve different parties in society, providing a solid platform for dealing
with the complex challenges and to create better societal models. Projects with European or international
focus are supported by the VILLUM FOUNDATION.
Sustainability, resources and biodiversity
The grants are focused on three related main topics:
· Sustainable societies – to bring about debate and awareness – and on the long perspective; sustainable changes
· Utilisation and management of resources - to bring about change, less consumption of resources and reduction of the environmental consequences in the producing countries
· Biodiversity – to protect nature and avoid loss of biodiversity
