              What we do

              The ZEITZ foundation was founded in 2008, by business entrepreneur Jochen Zeitz, with the mission to create and support sustainable, ecologically and socially responsible projects and destinations around the world to achieve long-lasting impact and sustainability through the holistic balance of Conservation, Community, Culture and Commerce (the 4Cs) in privately managed areas. An overview of our work in Laikipia can viewed through our YouTube channel here.

              Founded by the ZEITZ foundation and formerly known as the Long Run Initiative (LRI), The Long Run pursues the ZEITZ foundation’s mission internationally. By enhancing ecosystems management and building recognition and support for the 4Cs approach to sustainability, The Long Run is a driving force in promoting and encouraging sustainable thinking globally. 

               

               

              The ZEITZ foundation is headquartered in Laikipia, Kenya.  Centred in the Greater Segera area of Laikipia County and operating throughout the County, this is the ‘nursery’ for the ZEITZ foundation. A nursery in which innovative initiatives that encompass and represent the 4Cs approach are nurtured. When they approach maturity and show real signs of promise, the lessons and experiences are shared through The Long Run network.

              Our 4Cs Approach:

              The ZEITZ foundation aims to demonstrate that sustainable ecosystem management – and ultimately steps towards a healthy planet - can be achieved by balancing conservation, community, culture and commerce: what we call the 4Cs. 

              Governance Structures: 

              The ZEITZ foundation is a registered Charity in Germany and Kenya. 

               

              Zeitz Foundation Germany: The Zeitz Foundation was originally established in Germany in 2008, where it is known as the Zeitz Foundation for Inter-cultural Ecosphere Safety. Mr Jochen Zeitz is the Chairman.

              How we relate to you:

              Since we all have a responsibility towards this planet, you too can embrace the 4C philosophy. Visit a Long Run Destination to see what it means to live sustainably; change the way you behave, ask yourself if you are leaving your community and environment in a better state than you found it in.
