Lighthouse, that is us

Welcome to Lighthouse. Our mission is to contribute to social and ecological sustainability. Transformative research is at the core of our projects at a local and international scale. We connect and support conceptually, methodologically and financially initiatives that give innovative answers to specific sustainability challenges of our time.

¿Lighthouse?

What is Lighthouse?

  • A virtual and physical place of encounter, exchange, knowledge production, action and development of proposals.
  • A team that works with transformative methodologies under a radically open concept of research, paying as much attention to the process as to the results and involving those affected by the questions we are working on.
  • A net of alliances including informal groups, companies, universities, local governments, NGOs, communities and others, already working on pioneering answers to the social and ecological challenges of today.
  • A virtual knowledge bank in which transformational sustainability experiences, innovative proposals and pedagogically explored concepts are to be found.

 

What does Lighthouse do?

  • We provide methodological, conceptual and material support to third parties initiatives. We work with them to systematise their knowledge and approaches, and connect them to others.
  • We execute our own projects, in which we to contribute to social and ecological sustainability, developing our methodology and making new connections.

 

Why do we do it?

  • Because we face a social and ecological crisis of huge dimensions in which uncountable complex challenges at diverse scales are waiting to be solved. We want to make our contribution.
  • Because we urgently need to put at the centre those people that think and act beyond the already known, searching for unseen ideas that may be hiding the key to clever answers for our historical moment.

    “Working with Lighthouse is always exciting because it poses news challenges. I learn every day. I can contribute not only with my knowledge but, above all, I can contribute with my questions”

  • Esther, Transformative Research Project Manager

    “Interaction with people is fundamental for me in knowledge processes as you gain such wisdom from unique and different perspectives. I am lucky to work with people from diverse disciplinary, professional, or experiential backgrounds and language areas, in science, politics, art, business or civil society, and to do sustainability research together on multiple levels”
