Our target group

We offer executives, entrepreneurs, decision-makers and all people worldwide who are willing to deal with the diverse topics of sustainability.

Our mission

We offer a 360° training that creates a new mindset through a deepened awareness of the laws of nature and life. On this basis, the participants develop concrete implementation steps for their role and, beyond that, for a holistic way of life.

Our location

Our home is in the Pöllauer Tal Nature Park, a pioneering region for sustainability. Innovative model businesses have settled here in a unique natural and cultural landscape. The people who live here are actively involved in the work of the Academy for Sustainability. This creates a deeper understanding of the transformation process and promotes networking with a worldwide community.

Our definition of sustainability

By sustainable action we mean the measures that make it possible to pass on an intact nature, a peaceful society and a sustainable economy to the next generation. This requires new, future-oriented solutions in the areas of ecology, economy, culture and social affairs.

Our values

We empower people who are working to shape a modern, liveable and healthy world. We contribute to this with concrete answers to the needs of the new age. We also fundamentally promote the interest in learning new things and the joy of living pioneering spirit. And we motivate to see the laws of nature and life and systemic considerations as essential parts of sustainable solutions.

Our Faculty

Members of our faculty have many years of experience in adult education and in sustainable life and business management. They know the leverage points for the necessary change. They know how we can rethink our lives and our economies and shape them in the sense of a future fit for grandchildren.
