We are here! This is our life! We know what’s good for us and we find our own way there…
In August 2013, together with our fellow enthusiasts we founded the Förderverein Stechlin-Institut e.V. (a non-profit association to support the institute). The association seeks to provide a solid foundation for all of those who want to engage in the Stechlin-Institut with their brains, hearts and hands.
Members’ fees and donations go directly into the projects we are working on together.
