Outstanding Sustainable Organizations

Microsynth has selected 3 outstanding sustainable organizations which deserve financial support in their daily work to rescue our planet and make it a better place.

Bergwald Projekt

 
The foundation has a non-profit purpose: to promote the maintenance, care and protection of the forest and the cultural landscape in mountain regions, especially through care and restoration during work assignments and by encouraging the public’s understanding for the forest’s concerns.
Instead of being debated about, the forest should be experienced in the forest. Through practical forest work, the participants get to know firsthand the habitat of the mountain forest as well as its chances and problems. The work is done in close co-operation with the local forestry services. Volunteers between 18 and 88 years of age thereby actively contribute to the care of the protection forest.

Biovision

 
Since 1998, Biovision Foundation has been promoting the development, dissemination and application of sustainable ecological agricultural practices, allowing people in the developing world to help themselves. Key is their holistic approach: The health of people, animals, plants and the environment are central aims in all their projects. Biovision Foundation is a charitable organisation in Switzerland (ZEWO certified) and has a legal opinion for 501(c)(3) public charity equivalency in the United States. In 2013, Biovision and its founder Hans Rudolf Herren won the Right Livelihood Award, also known as the Alternative Nobel Prize.
 

Global Footprint Network

 
The Global Footprint Network is an international think tank promoting and driving sustainable policy decisions in a world of limited resources. Together with its various partners, Global Footprint Network (GFN) coordinates research, develops method-ological standards, and provides decision makers with a menu of tools to help the human economy operate within Earth’s ecological limits.
With the Ecological Footprint, the network has set a global standard for measuring global resources allowing to compare human consumption of natural resources with the actual situation. The Earth Overshoot Day marks the day in the year at which people begin to consume more natural resources than the earth can provide and reproduce in one year.
For the year 2019, this day has been calculated to fall on July 31!
