The Dorothea-Laura-Janina-Sick Environmental Foundation campaigns to protect the environment and prevent destruction of natural habitat, while raising awareness of global climate change and its devastating consequences for nature and the environment.

Dorothea Sick-Thies, Laura Thies und Janina Thies set up this foundation. Protect the Planet co-founder Markus Gohr was appointed by the founders to the Board of Directors.

The key focus of the foundation’s work is PR and awareness-raising campaigns, organisation and delivery of informative events, networking opportunities and expert talks, as well as promotion and publication of scientific studies. The Sick Environmental Foundation runs its own projects and also works with non-profit organisations on like-minded initiatives. It supports them with both tangible and intangible aids, and promotes Protect the Planet gGmbH in particular.
