The Anton & Petra Ehrmann-Stiftung is an approved, non-profit foundation with its headquarters in Böblingen (Baden-Württemberg), Germany. The foundation supports cultural and charitable development measures, mainly situated in the areas of youth, education, culture and environment. Through this, sustainable and future-oriented engagement and ideas are to be supported.

 

In 2007 and 2008 the Anton & Petra Ehrmann-Stiftung supported the project „Integration of Youths into a Sustainable Development and Conservation of the Heritage in the Barguzin River Valley in the Baikal Region”, a joint project of the GNF and FIRN, its Living Lakes partner organisation at Lake Baikal. The Barguzin River is, after the Selenga and Angara Rivers, the third largest feeder river of Lake Baikal. 64% of the river valley population are indigenous ethnic groups, such as the Burjaten and Evenken. The aim of the project is to give youths a better understanding of the traditional and sustainable cultivation methods and to conserve ethnic and cultural traditions. The unique natural and cultural heritage sites within the Barguzin River Valley are to be conserved in collaboration with reforestation and landscape conservation methods. Many young people do not see any prospects in staying in their hometown, due to a lack of jobs. Via integration into the project, youths can be introduced to new occupational possibilities, through which they can be sustainably linked to their home region.

 

Since 2009 the Foundation supports the Network Living Lakes Germany.
