V. Kann Rasmussen Foundation—Cultural Resilience and Global Leadership under the Conditions of Environmental Breakdown
The urgency of dealing with unsustainable consumption, the climate crisis, and their consequential impacts to our natural systems are the overall themes for the V. Kann Rasmussen Foundation. The complexity surrounding the impacts of climate change and scaling of our collective mitigation efforts are primary concerns. The Foundation favors projects that consider all life equally important, use a systems approach to address root causes and achieve change, take stock of and tell the truth about the scale, complexity, and urgency of dealing with environmental problems, are based on original thinking, creative ideas, and experimentation, alter power dynamics related to decision-making and influence, and have international significance and perspective, even if they are locally based. The V. Kann Rasmussen Foundation works primarily on international-level issues.
