Foundation for the Seas and Ocean

Earth's oceans are what give our planet its identity - the blue planet, the watery globe. They are the cradle of life, the region with the highest level of biodiversity we know, an irreplaceable source of food, a source and a storage chamber in world-scale chemical and energy cycles, the engine of earth's climate.

The Lighthouse Foundation supports integrated and long-term approaches in the relationship between humans and the marine environment within the context of sustainable development.

Pro­jects: Think glo­bal - Act lo­cal

The Lighthouse Foundation supports integrated and long-term approaches in the relationship between humans and the marine environment within the context of sustainable development.

All our projects have something to do with the seas and oceans: they are solution-oriented projects on the ground, an example of the feasibility of sustainable development. They show the linkage between humans and the sea, they also sensitize people in other regions and make a recognizable contribution to maritime awareness.

Our projects from 2000 until today

Themes: Sustainability and Oceans

Our theme is the sea and the human being. And the fur­ther we pro­gress, the more clearly we are com­ing to re­cog­nize the ex­tent of hu­man in­flu­ence on nat­ural pro­cesses in the seas and oceans. Finding new answers on the global ecological crisis is at the heart of the foundation.

Sustainable development demands long-term, holistic-oriented action and is not to be reduced to the sustainable use of maritime resources. The im­port­ant thing is to make it clear that the nat­ural world in its bio­lo­gical and phys­ical phe­nomen­o­logy is of value per se and can­not be re­duced to the isol­ated as­pect of sat­is­fac­tion of hu­man needs.
