THE FOUNDATION STIFTUNGSGEMEINSCHAFT ANSTIFTUNG & ERTOMIS
IDEAS FOR A HUMANE FUTURE
The foundation Stiftungsgemeinschaft anstiftung und ertomis is committed to funding projects that foster personal initiative and harmonious co-existence of cultures as well as to making a valuable contribution to other scientific, charitable and cultural projects.
Jens Mittelsten, Founder of the anstiftung & ertomis Foundation, received the „Deutscher Stifterpreis“ (German Foundation Award) for his commitment in Mai 2010.
The anstiftung & etomis Foundation does intensive research concerning conditions for sustainable ways of living. The Foundation builds networks and supports subsistence production in every day life, such as community gardening and open workshops for technical and cultural activities, initiatives for social life within certain neighborhoods and quarters or artistic interventions in public.
Supporting Neighboorhood, local and regional networks, intercultural understanding and history awareness as well as social, cultural, and manual active work are only some of the many major themes of the Foundation. Examples thereof are intercultural gardens, the „Haus der Eigenarbeit“ (House of Personal Contribution) in Munich, Germany and the Kempodium in Kempten, Germany. ‚Once initiated by the Foundation, those two constitutions, have offered a place for technical, artistic, and social activities for many years
