„A world with enough healthy nutrition for all, produced by healthy people in a healthy environment.“
Biovision Foundation combats hunger and poverty at their roots, and is committed to the dissemination and application of ecological methods that sustainably improve living conditions in Africa whilst also conserving the environment. Biovision renders ‚help for self-help‘ and promotes ecological thought and action in both North and South.
Human, animal, plant and environmental health is the foundation for sustainable development. The ecological methods promoted by Biovision improve the living conditions of those affected without exploiting people and the environment.
The goal is sustainable, ecological development. To achieve this, information and training programmes are launched in collaboration with local and international partner organisations and regionally adapted, sustainable solutions are developed and promoted. These projects and initiatives contribute to achieving the UNO’S Millennium Goals.
Showing solidarity and looking to the future, Biovision stands for effective, transparent development cooperation with an all-round, ecological approach. Our values are guided by the need to encourage ecologically and socially equitable ways of thinking and acting, both at home and in developing and emerging countries.
Biovision’s focus on processing information and disseminating and exchanging practical knowledge helps to empower people both in the North and South to take more responsibility for their actions and lifestyles, and to make decisions informed by environmental awareness.
With projects that are firmly established locally and that consistently encourage personal responsibility, people change from being passive subjects to active participants. Grassroots projects such as malaria prevention or income generation through cultivation of medicinal plants on the one hand improve the lives of those involved and at the same time can be used for demonstration and training purposes.
Through all of this, and the encouragement of self-help, solutions towards sustainable development are generated and implemented. A multiplier effect results from collaboration and exchange with local partners, which is what sustainability is all about.
