Initiatives

Lighthouse promotes sustainability in two ways:

  • It develops its own projects related to social and ecological sustainability.
  • It supports initiatives that work for sustainability and in which social and ecological dimensions are connected.

    They can be informal groups, associations, a participatory research project, etc., acting locally or internationally on one or more aspects of social and ecological sustainability.

    With the selected initiatives, we develop a partnership through one of our programs oriented to the systematization and exchange of knowledge and its dissemination, promoting networking, making connections between initiatives, in addition to possible financial support for specific projects.
