The Marion Dönhoff Fellowship at the Michael Succow Foundation

Marion Dönhoff kept pointing at the negative sides of capitalism, the unlimited pursuit of growth. Cooperation with Germany’s eastern neighbours and the promotion of young people were of great importance to her as well.

The Marion Dönhoff Foundation therefore funds a fellowship programme of the Michael Succow Foundation: The Marion Dönhoff Grant supports open and critical debates in the areas of environmental journalism, political ecology and sustainable development. It sponsors persons and organisations involved in these areas in former Soviet countries. In the spirit of Marion Dönhoff the aim is to strengthen proactive behaviour and individuals’ awareness to be jointly responsible for common welfare.

Programme Goals:

Integrating human rights issues in the environmental dialogue is an explicit goal.

The fellows are supposed to work on a subject of their own choice according to the programme goals, supported by the Michael Succow Foundation. The results of the stay and the analysis of a subject are to be published. The publication is part of the conditions for the grant. The Michael Succow Foundation will provide suitable contacts to individuals and organisations on the spot. The applicants may name other relevant organisations in their application.

The programme is a fellowship for post-graduates with professional experience and activists of civil society networks and groups in the fields of political ecology, environmental journalism or sustainable development.
